As part of the December 16, 2009, Business Meeting, the Energy Commission will consider adopting the joint Integrated Energy Policy Report (IEPR) and Siting Committees (Joint Committees) Final 2009 Strategic Transmission Investment Plan (2009 Strategic Plan). The document is posted on the Energy Commission website at: www.energy.ca.gov/2009_energypolicy/documents/.

Background

In 2004, the Legislature adopted Senate Bill 1565 (Bowen, Chapter 692, Statutes of 2004), which directed the Energy Commission to adopt a strategic transmission investment plan for the state. The strategic plan is to be included in the IEPR and "shall identify and recommend actions required to implement investments needed to ensure reliability, relieve congestion, and meet future growth in load and generation, including, but not limited to, renewable resources, energy efficiency, and other demand reduction measures." (Public Resources Code section 25324) The 2009 Strategic Plan has been prepared in response to this requirement.

On September 28, 2009, the Joint Committees published the Joint Committees Draft 2009 Strategic Plan. A hearing was held on October 8, 2009, to solicit public comments on the Committees' recommendations. The Joint Committees considered the comments received at the hearing as well as the written comments received from eleven parties in the preparation of this Joint Committees Final 2009 Strategic Plan.
