Agencies meet to discuss high-peak summer energy use
Members of the California Public Utilities Commission and the California Energy Commission met this week in San Francisco to make sure both agencies are working together to create a plan for providing reliable power next summer, according Tom Hall of the CPUC.
The CPUC and the California Energy Commission are “sister agencies,” and they meet frequently to discuss issues such as ownership of renewable energy certificates and how utility companies are implementing new, renewable energy standards to help meet peak summer energy needs, Hall said.
