The governor autographed legislation setting ground rules for allocating the California Air Resources Board\u2019s carbon cap-and-trade auction revenue. The market system for greenhouse gas credits is expected to generate between $600 million and $3 billion\/year. The first of the quarterly auctions is set for Nov. 14. Amid little fanfare, Gov. Jerry Brown Sept. 30 signed the conjoined AB 1532 by Assembly Speaker John Pérez (D-Los Angeles) and SB 535 by Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles). The former measure outlines using the revenue to promote clean and sustainable energy use. The latter bill directly allocates 10 percent of the revenue to reducing carbon pollution in low-income communities. \u201cThese laws chart the path for the state to achieve the goals of AB 32 and bring economic, environmental and health benefits to all Californians,\u201d Erica Morehouse, Environmental Defense Fund attorney, stated. \u201cOur poorest, most polluted communities will breathe easier thanks to these bills,\u201d added Nidia Bautista, policy director at the Coalition for Clean Air. Brown signed these bills too: -SB 1122 by Sen. Michael Rubio (D-Shafter) mandates that the investor-owned utilities make way by next June for an additional 250 MW of biopower projects. The size of projects from dairies, wastewater treatment plants, and food processing projects is capped at 3 MW. -AB 1332 by Assebmlymember Gloria Negrete McLeod (D-Chino) requires publicly owned utilities to adopt a feed-in-tariff by July 2013 to make way for up to 250 MW of local resources. Feed-in-tariffs provide a transparent contract with generic terms, avoiding timely one-on-one negotiations with utilities.
