Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill changes certain criteria for distributed generation resources to participate in net energy billing programs. It also directs the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and the Governor's Energy Office to convene a stakeholder group to consider various planned distributed generation project programs and the need for improved grid planning. The PUC has indicated that the requirements of this bill will require additional staffing.  The bill includes ongoing allocations of $111,138 starting in fiscal year 2021-22 for one Utility Analyst position and associated costs. The PUC is funded by an assessment set to produce sufficient revenue for the expenditures allocated by the Legislature for operating the PUC. The increased allocations in this bill require a corresponding increase in revenue from the assessment on transmission and distribution utilities.
