AB 1966, as introduced, Travis Allen. Energy: private energy producers.
Under existing law, the Public Utilities Commission has regulatory jurisdiction over public utilities, including electrical corporations, as defined. Existing law permits a private energy producer, as defined, to generate electricity not generated from conventional sources, as defined, solely for its own use or the use of its tenants, or generating electricity to or for any electrical corporation, heat corporation, state agency, city, county, district, or an association thereof, but not the public, without becoming a public utility subject to the general jurisdiction of the commission.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to this provision.
