On July 23, 2021, the CPUC issued a Draft Distributed Energy Resources Action Plan 2.0, intended to coordinate development and implementation of policy. 

Distributed energy resources include rooftop solar and other distributed renewable generation resources, energy storage, electric vehicles, time variant and dynamic rates, flexible load management, demand response, and energy efficiency technologies. California leads the nation in the growth of distributed energy resources, which will continue due to groundbreaking policies such as Senate Bill 100, as well as new commitments to increase transportation and building electrification and continued commitment to behind the meter solar generation and storage. Given these trends and the ongoing need for a coordinated strategic vision to guide distributed energy resources policy, the CPUC is updating its 2016 Distributed Energy Resources Action Plan. The Distributed Energy Resources Action Plan 2.0 will serve as a roadmap for CPUC decision-makers, staff, and stakeholders to facilitate forward-thinking policy and maximize ratepayer and societal value in an anticipated high-DER future.

Written comments will be accepted and considered before the Draft Distributed Energy Resources Action Plan 2.0 is finalized and put before the CPUC’s Commissioners for endorsement. Written comments may be sent to: by October 8, 2021.
