The purpose of the workshop is to solicit comments from interested parties on the draft Renewables Portfolio Standard Procurement Verification Report (Verification Report) and staff's proposed changes to the Renewables Portfolio Standard Eligibility Guidebook (RPS Guidebook), New Renewable Facilities Program Guidebook (NRFP Guidebook), and the Overall Renewable Energy Program Guidebook. Commissioner John L. Geesman is the Presiding Member and Vice Chair Jackalyne Pfannenstiel is the Associate Member of the Renewables Committee.

The Verification Report serves to transmit the Energy Commission's Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) procurement verification findings for the previous calendar year to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for implementing its roles in setting California's RPS targets and determining compliance with the state's RPS.

Highlights of the proposed changes, information about submitting comments (due 5:00 p.m. on December 9, 2005), and additional information are provided in the Committee's November 23, 2005 notice for the workshop.
