State legislation that sought to allow utility ratepayers to invest in community-generated renewable resources built by independent generators was overhauled to require private utilities to offer their customers 100 percent renewable power. The bill, SB 43 by Sen. Lois Wolk (D-Vacaville), was reworked in response to strong legislative opposition, particularly from the Assembly Utilities & Commerce Committee. \tThe measure aims to help private utilities\u2014in particular Pacific Gas & Electric\u2014compete against community choice aggregators, notably the Marin Energy Authority and CleanPowerSF, which offer or plan to offer utility ratepayers in their cities non-fossil-fueled resources. \tSB 43 caps the total 100 percent renewable offering by the three investor-owned utilities at 600 MW. It could open the door to independent generator-built community renewable resources as originally intended, although the language of that provision is not clear. \tOn Aug. 13, the bill was set to be heard by the Assembly Appropriations Committee. Instead, it was placed in the legislative suspense file because of the associated costs. Its fate, along with that of a bevy of other bills, is to be decided by law makers at the end of this month.
