Energy Efficiency in California’s Public Power Sector: SB 1037 Status Reports
California Senate Bill 1037 (Kehoe), signed into law in September 2005, established several important policies regarding energy efficiency. Among the many provisions of the law is a statewide commitment to cost‐effective and feasible energy efficiency, with the expectation that all utilities consider energy efficiency before investing in any other resources to meet growing demand. Assembly Bill 2021 (Levine) added to these policies by requiring the establishment of 10‐year energy efficiency targets on a triennial basis.
These annual reports comply with Section 6 of the statute, requiring each Publicly Owned Utility (POU) to report annually to its customers and the state on its investment in energy efficiency and demand reduction programs.
CMUA, in partnership with the Northern California Power Agency (NCPA) and the Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA), began a collaborative effort in 2005 to develop an evaluation tool to measure energy efficiency program effectiveness and report program savings in a consistent and comprehensive manner. This collaboration continues today.
