Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015 (SB 350)

Senate Bill (SB) 350 (de León, Chapter 547, 2015) requires the CPUC to focus energy procurement decisions on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent by 2030, including efforts to achieve at least 50 percent renewable energy procurement, doubling of energy efficiency, and promoting transportation electrification.

CPUC Implementation Framework

Broad directives provided by SB 350 to the CPUC can be broken down into five major policy areas:

  1. Integrated resource planning
  2. Energy Efficiency
  3. Renewable Energy
  4. Transportation Electrification
  5. Disadvantaged Communities

Please view our SB 350 Work Area Infographic

Each area requires collaboration with sister state agencies including the California Energy Commission and Air Resources Board. Disadvantaged community goals in SB 350 are cross-cutting and integrated into all policy areas.

The implementation of SB 350 at the CPUC will require multiple and concurrent regulatory proceedings. Please refer to the policy area pages linked above for up-to-date information on SB 350 implementation.
