Renewable Energy Procurement Plan Proposed for November 21, 2011
On April 12, 2011, Governor Brown signed into law Senate Bill (SB) 1X2, establishing a new Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) of 33% by 2020 for all load serving entities in California. Alameda Municipal Power (AMP), as a public utility, is covered under the new law.
SB 1X2 establishes minimum quantities of renewables that load serving entities must procure through 2020 ranging from 20% of retail sales by 2013 to 33% by 2020. Each load serving entity covered under the new law, including AMP, is required to develop and implement a Renewable Energy Procurement Plan.
AMP's Renewable Energy Procurement Plan will be considered for adoption at its November 21, 2011 Public Utility Board (PUB) Meeting at 7:00 p.m., City Hall Council Chambers, 2263 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda. A full report will be posted on November 14, 2011.
