This workshop is a follow up to a staff workshop held on May 15, 2007 that summarized the activities related to resource adequacy of the state's 55 individual publicly owned load-serving entities. These summaries are compiled in staff's Progress Report on Resource Adequacy Among Publicly Owned Load-Serving Entities in California, published on August 23, 2007. A copy of this report is posted to the Energy Commission's website at: www.energy.ca.gov/2007_energypolicy/documents/index.html. The Committees and Energy Commission staff seek the comments of interested parties with regard to the contents of this report and issues related to the resource adequacy of publicly owned load-serving entities in California.
Assembly Bill 380 (Nuñez), Chapter 367, Statutes of 2005, gives the Energy Commission the responsibility of reporting to the Legislature, as part of the biennial Integrated Energy Policy Report (IEPR), on the progress of the state's publicly owned electric utilities toward meeting resource adequacy, planning for, and procuring adequate resources to meet the needs of their end-use customers. Specifically, the bill adds Section 9620(d) to the Public Utilities Code, which states that the Energy Commission "shall report to the Legislature, to be included in each integrated energy policy report prepared pursuant to Section 25302 of the Public Resources Code, regarding the progress made by each local publicly owned electric utility serving end-use customers" toward resource adequacy.
The IEPR and Electricity Committees are seeking the active participation of interested parties in this workshop and proceeding.

Written comments will be posted to the Energy Commission website upon receipt. Should workshop attendees desire an opportunity to provide additional written comments after September 13, they may ask to do so at that time.
