Electric Program Investment Charge

Docket # 12-EPIC-01



The California Public Utilities Commission established the purposes and governance for the Electric Program Investment Charge in Decision 12-05-037 for Rulemaking 11-10-003 on May 24, 2012. In this decision, the CPUC designated the Energy Commission as one of four administrators of the program and required administrators to submit coordinated investment plans to the CPUC for consideration no later than November 1, 2012. The other designated administrators are Pacific Gas and Electric Company, San Diego Gas & Electric Company, and Southern California Edison Company, each of which are charged with administering a portion of the EPIC Program funding.

The portion of the EPIC Program administered by the Energy Commission will provide funding for applied research and development, technology demonstration and deployment, and market facilitation for clean energy technologies and approaches for the benefit of ratepayers of Pacific Gas and Electric Company, San Diego Gas & Electric Company, and Southern California Edison Company.

The CPUC plans to hold a proceeding to consider investment plans submitted by the four administrators. The current schedule anticipates a CPUC decision adopting or modifying the investment plans in May 2013.

The Energy Commission's development work on the EPIC investment plan is being conducted in accordance with recent legislation, Senate Bill 1018 (Statutes of 2012, Chapter 39), as well as the Energy Commission's broad authority under Public Resources Code Sections 25216 (c) and 25401.
