Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Action Plan

In 2016, the Commission endorsed the DER Action Plan to align the organization's vision and actions in shaping California's distributed energy resource future. The plan outlines a vision of DERs over the next several years, and serves as a roadmap in coordinating activities across multiple proceedings as California continues its commitment to greenhouse gas emission reduction and reform of utility distribution planning, investment, and operations. The plan serves as a guide for decision-makers, staff, and stakeholders as they facilitate proactive and forward-thinking DER policy.

Original and Updated Versions

The Commission endorsed the DER Action Plan at the November 10, 2016 Voting Meeting. On May 3, 2017, the Commission made the following non-substantive changes to the plan in order to improve clarity: the “Continuing Elements” and “Action Elements” in each Track were consolidated into one set of “Action Elements” for each Track, elements were renumbered, and the text was modified to reflect these changes. No other modifications were made.
