Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group

Senate Bill (SB) 350, the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015, requires that the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and the California Energy Commission create a Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group (DACAG) to provide advice on programs proposed to achieve clean and pollution reduction. As defined in SB 350, disadvantaged communities are the most burdened census tracts in California. Relative burden is determined by review of data on 20 pollution/ health and socio-economic factors.

The purpose of the joint proposal is to:

  • Inform stakeholders of the Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group
  • Propose a set of guiding principles for the Advisory Group
  • Propose roles and responsibilities of Advisory Group members, as well as minimum requirements necessary to serve on the Advisory Group
  • Propose roles and responsibilities of the CPUC and the Energy Commission
  • Solicit feedback from stakeholders
  • Identify outstanding questions regarding the Structure and Framework of the Advisory Group to be resolved

Written comments should be submitted to the Dockets Unit by 5:00 p.m. on August 15, 2017. All written comments will become part of the public record of this proceeding.
