Once a law works its way through the California legislature, and is signed into law by the Governor, it goes to regulatory agencies for implementation.
What Do Regulatory Agencies Do?
In general, regulatory agencies have two functions:
What is California’s Energy Regulatory Structure?
How Can Interested Stakeholders Influence the Regulatory Process?
What Determines CCSE’s Participation in a Particular Regulatory Proceeding?
CCSE regularly submits comments to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) or the California Energy Commission (CEC) in response to rulings and proposed decisions, seeks beneficial changes for our current programs through motions and petitions for modification, and attends and participates in workshops and forums.
To Which Regulatory Proceedings is CCSE a Party?
Regulatory Filings Made by CCSE
Which Regulatory Proceedings Does CCSE Regularly Monitor?
Energy Efficiency Risk/Reward Incentive Mechanism (RRIM) (R.09-01-019)
What’s this? This rulemaking carries on the work of R.09-01-019 to continue consideration of prospective reforms to the CPUC’s policies related to an energy efficiency risk/reward incentive mechanism (RRIM), which offers the four major California energy utilities, i.e., Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison Company (SCE), San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) and Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), incentives to achieve or surpass CPUC-adopted energy efficiency goals and to extend California's commitment to making energy efficiency the highest energy resource priority.
