Regional Grid: ISO to Extend Governance Proposal Development Process through End of Year




The ISO is updating the process and timeline for developing the regional governance proposal to allow for additional stakeholder input and consultation. The updated process follows Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.'s announcement to pursue legislation early next year that would change the ISO's governance design.



Main Text

Following Governor Brown's announcement today that he will pursue legislation early next year to change the ISO's governance to accommodate a regional energy grid, the ISO will adjust its stakeholder process and timeline to further refine its governance proposal, as well as to develop initiatives on greenhouse gas emission tracking, and complete initiatives on transmission access charge and resource adequacy.


The ISO is currently modifying its stakeholder initiative related to governance to be scheduled this year. This is intended to allow time to develop a strong proposal that the Legislature can consider in January.


The ISO looks forward to continuing work with stakeholders, state agencies, governor’s office and legislative staff, and western state representatives.
