On January 30, 2008, the Energy Commission approved an Order Instituting Rulemaking (OIR 06-0130-05) to adopt guidelines, definitions, and other provisions as deemed necessary for the administration of the Program. The primary purpose of the rulemaking is to develop and adopt regulations that are necessary to clarify ambiguities in statute and create certainty and transparency in the administration of the Program.
