The main provision of SB 350, signed into law last year, establishes California's goal of reaching a 50 percent renewable portfolio standard by 2030. In addition, SB 350 directs the ISO to complete studies to assess a regional grid's potential impacts to ratepayers, California's economy and workforce, the environment, disadvantaged communities, greenhouse gas emissions, and the reliability and integration of renewable energy resources.
