A final draft of the second interagency Energy Action Plan supports the California Public Utilities Commission's loading order—preferring renewables and efficiency for new power supplies—and pledges to remove barriers that now keep some energy information secret. It also gives the state a fair report card for implementing the first Energy Action Plan from 2003. Included in the actions agreed upon by the CPUC and the California Energy Commission in the draft plan are:<ul><li>Pushing through early deployment of advanced meters with customer access to meter information so they can use demand-response programs.<\/li> <li>Implementing a program to achieve the Million Solar Roofs goal of 3,000 MW.<\/li> <li>Replacing the state's least efficient, aging power plants and coordinating their outages.<\/li> <li>Restructuring utility ratemaking to reduce the number of proceedings.<\/li> <li>Facilitating prompt and environmentally sensitive evaluation of liquefied natural gas terminals.<\/li><\/ul>In assessing progress on actions outlined in the first plan, the draft document said that most were still in progress or ongoing but that some had been achieved. In the achieved column, the commissions counted improving new and remodeled building efficiency by 5 percent, improving air conditioner efficiency by 10 percent above federal mandates, establishing renewables portfolio rules, financing critical peak power plants, and identifying new gas transmission and gas storage facilities. The more thorny issues, such as getting utilities to enter into long-term contracts and developing a competitive wholesale energy market with meaningful market-power mitigation, remain in the in progress category. Both commissions are expected to vote on the plan at the end of August.
