             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  This bill would require the California Public  
          Utilities Commission (CPUC) to develop an annual procurement  
          goal for demand response that is designed to reduce peak demand.  



          Fiscal  
          Impact:  Annual costs in the range of $700,000 for two years to  
          Public Utilities Reimbursement Account (special Fund) for the  
          CPUC to develop the procurement goal


          Committee  
          Amendments:  
           Delete the creation of an energy efficiency resource standard  
            and the associated filing requirements








          AB 1330 (Bloom)                                        Page 1 of  
          ?
          
          

           Move the deadline for the establishment of the annual  
            procurement goal to November 1, 2017.


           Make the CPUC, rather than the California Energy Commission,  
            in charge of establishing the annual procurement goal.


           Specify that the procurement goal for demand response is  
            designed to reduce peak demand.
