LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 646, as introduced, Hertzberg. Electricity: integrated resource planning.
Existing law requires the Public Utilities Commission to adopt a process for each load-serving entity, defined to include electrical corporations, electric service providers, and community choice aggregators, to file an integrated resource plan and a schedule for periodic updates to the plan to ensure that it meets, among other things, the state’s targets for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and the requirement to procure at least 60% of its electricity from eligible renewable energy resources by December 31, 2030. Existing law additionally require that the integrated resource plan contribute to a diverse and balanced portfolio of resources needed to ensure a reliable supply of electricity that provides optimal integration of renewable energy resources in a cost-effective manner and prevents cost shifting among load-serving entities.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive revision to the requirement that an integrated resource plan contribute to a diverse and balanced portfolio of resources needed to ensure a reliable supply of electricity that provides optimal integration of renewable energy resources in a cost-effective manner.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
