CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

SENATE BILL
NO. 67


Introduced by Senator Becker

December 07, 2020


An act relating to energy.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 67, as introduced, Becker. Clean Energy.

Under existing law, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has regulatory authority over public utilities, including electrical corporations. The California Renewables Portfolio Standard Program requires the PUC to establish a renewables portfolio standard requiring all retail sellers, as defined, to procure a minimum quantity of electricity products from eligible renewable energy resources, as defined, so that the total kilowatthours of those products sold to their retail end-use customers achieves 25% of retail sales by December 31, 2016, 33% by December 31, 2020, 44% by December 31, 2024, 52% by December 31, 2027, and 60% by December 31, 2030. The program requires the PUC to establish appropriate 3-year compliance periods for all subsequent years that require retail sellers to procure not less than 60% of retail sales of electricity products from eligible renewable energy resources. The program additionally requires each local publicly owned electric utility, as defined, to procure a minimum quantity of electricity products from eligible renewable energy resources to achieve the procurement requirements established by the program. The program requires the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission to establish appropriate multiyear compliance periods for all subsequent years that require the local publicly owned electric utility to procure not less than 60% of retail sales of electricity products from eligible renewable energy resources.

Existing law establishes as policy of the state that eligible renewable energy resources and zero-carbon resources supply 100% of retail sales of electricity to California end-use customers and 100% of electricity procured to serve all state agencies by December 31, 2045.
This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation to accelerate the state’s progress toward having 100% of electricity provided by renewable or other zero-carbon sources on a 24-hour, 7-day basis.
Vote: majority   Appropriation: no   Fiscal Committee: no   Local Program: no  

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:


SECTION 1.

 It is the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation to accelerate the state’s progress toward having 100 percent of electricity provided by renewable or other zero-carbon sources on a 24-hour, seven-day basis, by doing all of the following:
(a) Set an earlier target date for achieving 100 percent clean energy.
(b) Define electric loads that are subject to the 100-percent clean energy requirement to include all instate consumption.
(c) Direct the State Air Resources Board and the Public Utilities Commission to establish a system for tracking the provision and consumption of clean energy, similar to tracking renewable energy credits today, but with higher granularity so that clean energy provision can be tracked on an hourly basis.
(d) Require the tracking system to take into account the ability of storage-like resources to move the timing of the provision of clean energy.
(e) Direct the Public Utilities Commission to establish a clean energy standard with compliance periods and procurement targets that require load-serving entities to procure clean energy equivalent to defined portions of their load during different periods of the day and during different seasons of the year, in addition to the existing annual renewable portfolio standard compliance target.

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 68, as introduced, Becker. Building decarbonization.
Existing law requires the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission to assess the potential for the state to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases from the state’s residential and commercial building stock by at least 40% below 1990 levels by January 1, 2030.
This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation that will help the state achieve its climate and air pollution reduction goals in the building sector through actions such as reducing barriers to upgrading electrical service panels or accommodating additional electrical appliances within existing service panels.
Vote: majority   Appropriation: no   Fiscal Committee: no   Local Program: no
