Ratepayers can monitor the progress of California’s utilities as they move toward meeting the state’s renewable energy goals.
The first compliance period is at the end of the year, when utilities are required to purchase an average of 20% of retail energy from renewable resources.
The Renewable Portfolio Standards compliance periods: 25% by Dec. 31, 2016; 33% by Dec. 31, 2020; and no less than 33% in all subsequent years.
The state Energy Commission offers an online tool to follow it all, with data obtained from the utilities from self-reporting.
