Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment replaces portions of the bill regarding the procurement of distributed generation.  Under this amendment, the Public Utilities Commission would be required to conduct at least two solicitations for long-term contracts to acquire distributed energy resources and must do that without exceeding the aggregate cost of the procurement process it replaces.  Additional staff would no longer be needed and the allocations in the committee amendment for staff and contracted consultants are reversed.
