CPUC Issues Enforcement Decision on RPS Program Rules

On August 7, 2019, the California Public Utilities Commission issued its Decision on Enforcement of California Renewables Portfolio Standard Program Rules (D.19-08-007). The decision rejects waiver requests of two electric service providers (“ESPs”) and imposes penalties against both ESPs for failing to fully comply with the Renewables Portfolio Standard (“RPS”) program in the amount of $50 per Renewable Energy Credit (“REC”) that the ESPs were short in satisfying their overall RPS procurement quantity requirement.
