Electricity: transmission capacity: reconductoring and grid-enhancing technologies.

Abstract

Existing law vests the Public Utilities Commission with jurisdiction over public utilities, including electrical corporations. Existing law establishes the policy of the state that eligible renewable energy resources and zero-carbon resources supply 90% of all retail sales of electricity to California end-use customers by December 31, 2035, 95% of all retail sales of electricity to California end-use customers by December 31, 2040, 100% of all retail sales of electricity to California end-use customers by December 31, 2045, and 100% of electricity procured to serve all state agencies by December 31, 2035. Under existing law, a violation of the Public Utilities Act is a crime. This bill would require transmission utilities, as defined, on or before January 1, 2026, to jointly prepare a grid-enhancing technologies strategic plan that is designed to, among other things, cost-effectively increase transmission capacity and increase capacity to connect new renewable energy and zero-carbon resources. The bill would require each transmission utility, on or before January 1, 2026, and at least every 4 years thereafter, to complete an evaluation of which of its transmission and distribution lines can be reconductored with advanced conductors in a cost-effective manner to, among other things, increase transmission or distribution capacity and increase capacity to connect new renewable energy and zero-carbon resources. The bill would, upon completion of the plan and the evaluation, require the transmission utilities to submit the plan and evaluation to the commission and to make the plan and evaluation publicly available. The bill would require the plan and evaluation to include a timeline for implementation, as specified. The bill would require each transmission utility to report the progress in implementing the plan in its integrated resource plan. Because the above-described requirements would be a part of the act, a violation of which would be a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
