Database of Investor-Owned Utilities' Contracts for Renewable Generation,
Contracts Signed Towards Meeting the California RPS Targets
California has among the most aggressive renewable energy deployment policies in the nation. The Renewables Portfolio Standard is central to the state's renewable goals, and calls for 33 percent of the state's electricity supply to come from eligible renewable energy sources by 2020. Thousands of megawatts (MW) of new renewable energy capacity will be needed to meet this target.
Since the RPS was established in 2002, the state's investor-owned utilities - Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) - have used a variety of mechanisms to increase procurement of RPS-eligible renewable energy. The investor-owned utilities have signed contracts for 17,226 to 19,201 MW of capacity from new, repowered, or restarted renewable facilities, with 4,174 MW of these projects currently online (updated March 31, 2012).
To make information about the contracting efforts of the state's investor-owned utilities transparent, the Energy Commission is providing an Excel database on the renewable energy contracts signed by PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E since 2002. The database was developed using public information that is available through filings with the California Public Utilities Commission and other sources. Additional information on RPS procurement efforts and their results is located on the California Public Utilities Commission's website at www.cpuc.ca.gov/PUC/energy/Renewables.
A number of summary tables and charts follow the Energy Commission's listing of signed contracts. The database will be updated regularly based on new information that is made public. We invite and welcome feedback, updates, or any other corrections to the current version of the database.
