The Agency’s Regulatory Program is responsible for advocacy, compliance, and litigation related to proceedings before state, federal, and regional regulatory agencies.  Fundamental to this effort is ensuring a consistent and clear understanding of public power and local control in the various state regulatory agencies. Key areas of interest to public power systems include, but are not limited to:  1) shaping regulatory policies surrounding post-2020 goals for California’s greenhouse gas emission reduction program, and; 2) educating, reporting, and managing compliance activities related to energy efficiency, renewable resources, and greenhouse gas emissions.   At the federal level, this area of the program promotes favorable transmission policies that prevent the imposition of unwarranted costs on consumers, and ensures that the implementation of reliability standards and cybersecurity requirements and processes do not impose an undue and unworkable burden on our state’s smaller utility systems.
