Main Text

Under the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act, Senate Bill 350, the California Independent System Operator was required to: (1) prepare governance modifications needed to transform into a regional organization; and (2) conduct one or more studies of the impacts of a regional market enabled by the proposed governance modifications, including overall benefits to ratepayers, including the creation or retention of jobs and other benefits to the California economy, environmental impacts in California and elsewhere, impacts in disadvantaged communities, emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants, and reliability and integration of renewable energy resources. At the workshop, the California Independent System Operator will present proposed governance modifications and the results of recent regional market expansion studies.
