Welcome to the California Energy Commission

How to participate in WREGIS

Yahoo Groups' list servers have been established to facilitate communication among members of the committees and provide a means for interested stakeholders to monitor and comment on committee work products. The Yahoo Groups website for each of the committees will maintain a complete set of working documents, archive of all messages, calendar of meetings and events, and an area for posting links and other background documents.

If you have previously signed up for a committee, your name has been added already to the Yahoo Groups list serve for that committee. You will receive an e-mail confirming your participation in the committee list server. Please note that some e-mail spam filters may block e-mail from Yahoo Groups. If you did not receive an e-mail confirming your status on the committee list server or are uncertain about your status, please follow the link or send a blank e-mail to the appropriate address below, and we will confirm your status.

The following four lists are open for anyone to access or join. You may sign up for any or all of the list servers.
