The California Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) Program was established by Senate Bill (SB) 1078 (2002) and amended by SB 107 (2006). ? The law requires that each retail seller of electricity increase its procurement of eligible renewable energy resources by at least one percent of annual retail sales per year so that 20 percent of its retail sales are supplied by eligible renewable energy resources by 2010. ? The CPUC is responsible for determining annual procurement targets, approving utility procurement plans, overseeing the IOUsâ?? annual renewables solicitations, reviewing RPS power purchase agreements and assessing compliance with annual targets. ? The CEC establishes the renewable resources eligibility guidelines and certifies RPS facilities. ? Thus far, the CPUC has approved 80 RPS contracts with the IOUs for nearly 4,000 MW. ? While the RPS procurement and contracting process has been successful, only about 340 MW of the approved projects have come online â?? project development (e.g. permitting, transmission upgrades) continues to delay project online dates. ? While now working with other agencies to implement solutions to these project development hurdles, the CPUC continues to refine the RPS procurement processes, track progress with the RPS goals and consider additional ways to comply with the RPS program.
