A draft California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan released by the California Public Utilities Commission February 8 contains few enforceable strategies but pitches a number of encompassing goals. The document, which recommends transferring much of the efficiency responsibility to the customer, was the result of a combined effort of the state\u2019s major utilities\u2014Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, SoCal Gas, and San Diego Gas & Electric. The draft calls for \u201cadditional analyses\u201d and expects \u201ccontinual revisions.\u201d Covering a dozen sectors of the economy, the plan addresses consumers such as commercial ones. The state seeks to impose \u201cnet zero\u201d energy consumption for new commercial construction by 2030. For new residential construction, \u201cnet zero\u201d would also be imposed by 2030. Residences\u2019 efficiency would be imposed through local governments and a system for monitoring their energy use. For industrial customers, the state envisions a \u201ccentralized\u201d place where customers can access information on efficiency. The plan recognizes that increasing the level and approach to energy efficiency entails \u201csignificant costs\u201d and requires \u201cunprecedented collaboration\u201d between state agencies and stakeholders. If successful, the result will be depend less on utilities and more on customer-owned and provided resources. A final version of the efficiency plan is slated for May.
