                                 Das Williams, Chair

          350 (De León) - As Amended July 8, 2015

          SENATE VOTE:  24-14

          SUBJECT:  Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015

          SUMMARY:  Enacts the "Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act  
          of 2015," which establishes targets to reduce petroleum use in  
          motor vehicles by 50% by 2030, double the energy efficiency of  
          buildings by 2030, and increase retail sales of renewable  
          electricity to 50% by 2030.

          EXISTING LAW:   

          Petroleum Reduction:

          1)Requires the Air Resources Board (ARB) to adopt and implement  
            motor vehicle emission standards, in-use performance  
            standards, and motor vehicle fuel specifications for the  
            control of air contaminants and sources of air pollution which  
            ARB finds necessary, cost effective, and technologically  
            feasible, unless preempted by federal law.
          2)Requires the California Energy Commission (CEC) and ARB to  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  2

            adopt recommendations for the Governor and Legislature to  
            reduce petroleum dependence [AB 2076 (Shelley), Chapter 936,  
            Statutes of 2000].  The AB 2076 report, "Reducing California's  
            Petroleum Dependence" (August 2003), recommended the Governor  
            and Legislature (1) adopt a statewide goal of reducing on-road  
            gasoline and diesel consumption by 15% below 2003 levels by  
            2020, (2) work with the California delegation and other states  
            to establish national fuel economy standards that double fuel  
            efficiency, and (3) establish a goal to increase the use of  
            nonpetroleum fuels to 20% by 2020 and 30% by 2030.

          3)Requires CEC and ARB to adopt a state plan to increase the use  
            of alternative transportation fuels, including setting  
            alternative fuel goals for 2012, 2017 and 2022 [AB 1007  
            (Pavley), Chapter 371, Statutes of 2005].  The AB 1007 "State  
            Alternative Fuels Plan" (December 2007) recommended goals for  
            alternative fuel use of 9% by 2012, 11% by 2017 and 26% by  

          4)Requires ARB to adopt regulations that achieve the maximum  
            feasible and cost-effective reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG)  
            emissions from motor vehicles [AB 1493 (Pavley), Chapter 200,  
            Statutes of 2002].

          5)Requires ARB to adopt a statewide GHG emissions limit  
            equivalent to 1990 levels by 2020 and to adopt rules and  
            regulations to achieve maximum technologically feasible and  
            cost-effective GHG emission reductions [AB 32 (Nunez), Chapter  
            488, Statutes of 2006].  In 2009, ARB adopted a low-carbon  
            fuel standard (LCFS) regulation pursuant to AB 32.  The LCFS  
            requires a reduction in the carbon intensity of California's  
            transportation fuels by at least 10% by 2020.

          6)Establishes the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle  
            Technology Program (ARFVTP) to support alternative vehicle  
            technologies and fuels as part of the California Alternative  
            and Renewable Fuel, Vehicle Technology, Clean Air, and Carbon  
            Reduction Act of 2007 [AB 118 (Nunez), Chapter 750, Statutes  
            of 2007].  The ARFVTP is administered by the CEC and receives  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  3

            approximately $100 million per year from temporary surcharges  
            on vehicle and vessel fees.  Collection of these fees  
            currently is authorized until 2024.  Projects to improve  
            alternative and renewable low-carbon fuels are eligible for  

          7)Requires metropolitan planning organizations to include  
            sustainable communities strategies, as defined, in their  
            regional transportation plans for the purpose of reducing GHG  
            emissions from transportation [SB 375 (Steinberg), Chapter  
            728, Statutes of 2008].

          Building Efficiency:

          8)Requires the CEC to establish regulations to develop and  
            implement a comprehensive program to achieve greater energy  
            savings in California's existing residential and  
            nonresidential building stock [AB 758 (Skinner), Chapter 470,  
            Statutes of  2009].  The AB 758 program is targeted at  
            buildings that "fall significantly below" the current Title 24  
            energy efficiency standards.  

          Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS):

          9)Requires "retail sellers" of electricity, i.e., investor-owned  
            utilities (IOUs), energy service providers (ESPs) and  
            community choice aggregators (CCAs), as well as publicly owned  
            utilities (POUs), to procure eligible renewable energy  
            resources to meet the following portfolio targets:

             a)   20% on average from January 1, 2011 to December 31,  

             b)   25% by December 31, 2016.

             c)   33% by December 31, 2020 and each year thereafter.

          10)Authorizes the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to require  
            retail sellers to procure eligible renewable energy resources  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  4

            in excess of these targets.

          11)Provides that eligible renewable generation facilities must  
            use biomass, solar thermal, photovoltaic, wind, geothermal,  
            renewable fuel cells, small hydroelectric, digester gas,  
            limited non-combustion municipal solid waste conversion,  
            landfill gas, ocean wave, ocean thermal or tidal current.

          12)Establishes "balanced portfolio" requirements for procurement  
            based on the following three categories of renewable energy  

             a)   Renewable energy interconnected to the grid within,  
               scheduled for direct delivery into, or dynamically  
               transferred to, a California balancing authority (i.e.,  
               real renewable energy supplied to the California grid,  
               located within or proximate to the state).  Of the total  
               renewable energy contracts executed after June 1, 2010, the  
               following percentages must fall into this category:
               i)     At least 50% for the 2011-2013 compliance period.

               ii)    At least 65% for the 2014-2016 compliance period.

               iii)   At least 75% thereafter.

             b)   Renewable energy where substitute non-renewable energy  
               is used to provide a reliable delivery schedule into a  
               California balancing authority (i.e., firmed and shaped  
               energy where substitute energy is used to compensate for  
               delivery problems due to intermittent generation or  
               inadequate transmission capacity from a remote renewable  

             c)   Renewable energy products not meeting either condition  
               above, including unbundled renewable energy credits (RECs)  
               (i.e., the original source of renewable energy must be  
               located within the western grid, but otherwise need not be  
               delivered to the California grid).  Of the total renewable  
               energy contracts executed after June 1, 2010, the following  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  5

               percentages may fall into this category:

               i)     Not more than 25% for the 2011-2013 compliance  

               ii)    Not more than 15% for the 2014-2016 compliance  

               iii)   Not more than 10% thereafter.

          13)Requires the CEC to:

             a)   Certify eligible renewable energy resources according to  
               the criteria in the statute.

             b)   Design and implement an accounting system to verify  
               compliance, to ensure that electricity generated by an  
               eligible renewable energy resource is counted only once for  
               the purpose of meeting the RPS of this state or any other  
               state, to certify RECs produced by eligible renewable  
               energy resources, and to verify retail product claims in  
               this state or any other state. 

             c)   Establish a system for tracking and verifying RECs that,  
               through the use of independently audited data, verifies the  
               generation of electricity associated with each REC and  
               protects against multiple counting of the same REC. 

          14)Requires the PUC to establish a cost limit for each IOU  
            according to specified criteria, requires the PUC to report to  
            the Legislature by 2016 regarding whether IOUs can achieve 33%  
            within the adopted cost limit, authorizes the PUC to revise  
            the cost limit once after 2016 if necessary, and authorizes  
            IOUs to stop procuring renewable energy beyond the cost limit,  
            unless additional renewable energy can be procured without  
            exceeding a de minimis increase in rates.

          15)Permits retail sellers to take credit for compliance  
            surpluses by requiring the PUC to adopt "banking" rules  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  6

            permitting retail sellers to apply excess procurement to  
            subsequent compliance periods.  Prohibits banking of  
            procurement associated with contracts of less than 10 years,  
            as well as RECs and other undelivered products.

          16)Excuses retail sellers from enforcement for failure to meet  
            targets if the retail seller demonstrates that any of the  
            following conditions are beyond its control and will prevent  

             a)   Inadequate transmission capacity for delivery of  
               sufficient renewable energy.

             b)   Permitting, interconnection or other delays for  
               renewable energy projects, or an insufficient supply of  
               available renewable energy.

             c)   Unanticipated curtailment of renewable energy necessary  
               to address the needs of a balancing authority (e.g., the  
               Independent System Operator).

          THIS BILL:

          1)Directs ARB, in adopting motor vehicle emission, performance  
            and fuel standards pursuant to its existing authority, to  
            achieve a 50% reduction in petroleum use in motor vehicles by  
            2030.  Requires ARB to prepare a petroleum reduction strategy  
            and implementation plan by January 1, 2017, and update the  
            plan every three years.

          2)Directs CEC to adopt an update to the AB 758 program, by  
            January 1, 2017 and every three years thereafter, to achieve  
            an overall doubling of the energy efficiency of buildings by  
            January 1, 2030.

          3)Requires the CEC to adopt, implement, and enforce a  
            responsible contractor policy for use across all  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  7

            ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs that involve  
            installation or maintenance, or both installation and  
            maintenance, by building contractors to ensure that retrofits  
            meet high-quality performance standards and reduce energy  
            savings lost or foregone due to poor-quality workmanship.

          4)Establishes a RPS target of 50% by December 31, 2030 and  
            thereafter for retail sellers and POUs, including interim  
            targets of 40% by the end of the 2021-2024 compliance period,  
            45% by the end of the 2025-2027 compliance period, and 50% by  
            the end of the 2028-2030 compliance period.

          5)Requires the PUC to direct each IOU to include in its proposed  
            procurement plan a strategy for procuring a diverse portfolio  
            of resources that provide a reliable electricity supply,  
            including renewable energy integration needs, using zero  
            carbon-emitting resources to the maximum extent reasonable.  
            Requires the net capacity costs of those resources to be  
            allocated on a fully nonbypassable basis.

          6)Removes specified criteria and reporting requirement from the  
            RPS cost limit, instead directing the PUC to set the cost  
            limit at a level that prevents disproportionate rate impacts.

          7)Limits the RPS eligibility of a facility engaged in the  
            combustion of municipal solid waste located in Stanislaus  
            County to contracts entered into before January 1, 2016.

          8)Establishes the following "transportation electrification"  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  8

             a)   Requires ARB to identify and adopt appropriate policies  
               to remove regulatory disincentives facing retail sellers  
               from facilitating the achievement of GHG emission  
               reductions in other sectors through increased investments  
               in transportation electrification, including an allocation  
               of GHG emissions allowances to retail sellers to account  
               for increased emissions in the electric sector from  
               transportation electrification.

             b)   Requires the PUC, in consultation with the ARB and CEC,  
               to direct IOUs to propose multiyear programs and  
               investments to accelerate widespread transportation  
               electrification to reduce dependence on petroleum, meet air  
               quality standards, achieve the goals set forth in the  
               Charge Ahead California Initiative, and reduce emissions of  
               greenhouse gases to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 and to  
               80% below 1990 levels by 2050.  Requires the PUC to approve  
               programs and investments that deploy charging  
               infrastructure as distribution system costs.

             c)   Requires the PUC to review data concerning current and  
               future electric transportation adoption rates and charging  
               infrastructure utilization rates no less than every three  
               years and prior to any further authorization to collect  
               additional new program costs related to transportation  
               electrification in ratepayer rates.  If market barriers  
               unrelated to the investment prevent electric transportation  
               from adequately utilizing available charging  
               infrastructure, the PUC shall not permit additional  
               investments without adequate assurance that the investments  
               would not result in stranded costs recoverable from  

             d)   Establishes a new RPS compliance "offramp" for  
               unanticipated increases in retail sales due to  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  9

               transportation electrification, if the waiver would not  
               result in an increase in GHG emissions.  In making a  
               finding, the PUC must consider whether transportation  
               electrification significantly exceeded forecasts in that  
               retail seller's service territory and whether the retail  
               seller has taken reasonable measures to procure sufficient  
               resources to account for the unanticipated increases.

          9)Authorizes "procurement entities," subject to PUC  
            authorization, and POUs to procure an unspecified percentage  
            of retail sales of onsite generation within the area served by  
            the procurement entity or POU to serve local electricity  
            needs.  Requires onsite renewable generation to be certified  
            by the CEC pursuant to its RPS tracking and verification  
            procedures and prohibits estimation of energy production from  
            onsite generation to demonstrate RPS compliance.

          10)Requires the PUC and CEC to do all of the following in  
            furtherance of meeting the state's clean energy and pollution  
            reduction objectives:

             a)   Take into account the use of distributed generation to  
               the extent that it provides economic and environmental  
               benefits in disadvantaged communities.

             b)   Take into account the opportunities to decrease costs  
               and increase benefits, including pollution reduction and  
               grid integration, using technologies with zero onsite GHG  

             c)   Where feasible, authorize procurement of resources to  
               provide grid reliability services that minimize reliance on  
               system power and fossil fuel resources and, where feasible,  


                                                                     SB 350

               cost-effective, and consistent with other state policy  
               objectives, increase the use of large- and small-scale  
               energy storage with a variety of technologies, targeted  
               energy efficiency, demand response, eligible renewable  
               energy resources, or other technologies with zero onsite  
               greenhouse gas emissions to protect system reliability.

             d)   Review technology incentive, research, development,  
               deployment, and market facilitation programs overseen by  
               the PUC and CEC and make recommendations to advance state  
               clean energy and pollution reduction objectives and provide  
               benefits to disadvantaged communities.

             e)   To the extent feasible, give first priority to the  
               manufacture and deployment of clean energy and pollution  
               reduction technologies that create employment  
               opportunities, including high wage, highly skilled  
               employment opportunities, and increased investment in the  

             f)   Establish a publicly available tracking system to  
               provide up-to-date information on progress toward meeting  
               the clean energy and pollution reduction goals of the Clean  
               Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015.

             g)   Establish an advisory group consisting of  
               representatives from disadvantaged communities to review  
               and advise on programs proposed to achieve clean energy and  
               pollution reduction and determine whether those proposed  
               programs will be effective and useful in disadvantaged

          1)Governor's goals.  In his January 5, 2015 Inaugural Address,  
            Governor Brown announced the following "objectives for 2030  
            and beyond":

               Toward that end, I propose three ambitious goals to be  
               accomplished within the next 15 years:

                           Increase from one-third to 50% our electricity  
                    derived from renewable sources;
                           Reduce today's petroleum use in cars and  
                    trucks by up to 50%; and,

                           Double the efficiency of existing buildings  
                    and make heating fuels cleaner.


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  13

               We must also reduce the relentless release of methane,  
               black carbon and other potent pollutants across industries.  
                And we must manage farm and rangelands, forests and  
               wetlands so they can store carbon.  All of this is a very  
               tall order.  It means that we continue to transform our  
               electrical grid, our transportation system and even our  

               I envision a wide range of initiatives:  more distributed  
               power, expanded rooftop solar, micro-grids, an energy  
               imbalance market, battery storage, the full integration of  
               information technology and electrical distribution and  
               millions of electric and low-carbon vehicles.  How we  
               achieve these goals and at what pace will take great  
               thought and imagination mixed with pragmatic caution.  It  
               will require enormous innovation, research and investment.   
               And we will need active collaboration at every stage with  
               our scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, businesses and  
               officials at all levels.

               Taking significant amounts of carbon out of our economy  
               without harming its vibrancy is exactly the sort of  
               challenge at which California excels.  This is exciting, it  
               is bold and it is absolutely necessary if we are to have  
               any chance of stopping potentially catastrophic changes to  
               our climate system.

          1)RPS.  The RPS is the centerpiece of California's effort to  
            develop a clean energy system and reduce pollution and GHG  
            emissions associated with electricity consumption.  The  
            original RPS bill, SB 1078 (Sher), Chapter 516, Statutes of  
            2002, set a goal of 20% by 2017.  SB 107 (Simitian), Chapter  
            464, Statutes of 2006, accelerated the deadline for 20% to  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  14

            2010.  SBX1 2 (Simitian), Chapter 1, Statutes of 2011-12 First  
            Extraordinary Session, codified the current 33% by 2020 RPS  
            target and also established product content categories (or  
                                                 "buckets"), which place the highest value (Bucket 1) on  
            renewable energy that is directly delivered into California  
            because it has the greatest economic, environmental and  
            reliability benefits.

            Since the RPS was enacted, IOUs have advanced beyond their  
            2002 average starting point of 12% renewables.  According to  
            the PUC's RPS reports, IOUs' actual RPS procurement in 2013  
            was 23.8% for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), 21.6% for  
            Southern California Edison (SCE), and 23.6% for San Diego Gas  
            & Electric (SDG&E).  The PUC reports also show that the IOUs  
            are on track to meet the RPS requirement of 25% renewables by  
            2016 and are well-positioned to meet the 33% requirement by  
            2020.  RPS procurement currently under contract for 2020 is  
            31.3% for PG&E, 23.5% for SCE, and 38.8% for SDG&E.

          2)P.R. flak.  With respect to petroleum reduction, in contrast  
            to the detailed RPS provisions, this bill takes a "less is  
            more" approach, simply embedding the 50% target within ARB's  
            existing authority to adopt motor vehicle emission,  
            performance and fuel standards to control air pollution (as  
            opposed to adding the target to the division added by AB 32  
            governing GHG emissions).  This has sparked a lively debate  
            about what exactly ARB might do to achieve the target.

            In fact, there seems to be little real dispute about what the  
            measures are.  Information provided to the committee by oil  
            companies, automakers and environmental groups is remarkably  
            similar.  The principal existing GHG/petroleum reduction  
            measures are vehicle miles traveled (VMT) reduction through SB  
            375, GHG standards for light-duty vehicles through AB 1493, as  
            well as alternative/zero emission vehicles (collectively  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  15

            Advanced Clean Cars), alternative/low-carbon fuels through  
            LCFS and incentive programs (e.g., AB 118) and a declining cap  
            on transportation fuel emissions at the supplier level through  
            the cap-and-trade regulation.

            The real question is how much more needs to done to achieve  
            50% by 2030.  A recent analysis prepared by Sierra Research  
            for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers found that  
            "existing regulatory programs are expected to reduce petroleum  
            consumption in California by about 31% from 2015 to 2030.  The  
            reduction in VMT growth (from 17% to 4%) assumed by CARB  
            staff?would further reduction petroleum consumption (to 41% by  

            The main ingredients to increase petroleum reduction to 50% by  
            2030 appear to be a combination of reduced VMT growth, more  
            ZEVs, more stringent GHG standards for light-duty vehicles,  
            and increased use of alternative fuels.  The proposition that  
            achieving a 50% petroleum reduction will require banning or  
            rationing petroleum is a red herring.  Then again, so is the  
            idea that the goal can be achieved without major,  
            unprecedented investments in transportation infrastructure and  
            changes in consumer behavior.

            As to whether this bill gives ARB "unfettered" authority, in  
            fact the bill does not change ARB's regulatory authority.  ARB  
            has authority to regulate motor vehicle emission, performance  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  16

            and fuel standards, and those regulations must be  
            cost-effective, technologically feasible, and consistent with  
            federal law.  This bill establishes a target that will require  
            ARB to push harder, but still within the boundaries of  
            existing law.  ARB's actions are further fettered by  
            administrative procedures governing adoption of regulations,  
            the California Environmental Quality Act, annual review and  
            approval of its budget by the Legislature, Senate confirmation  
            of its board members, and, ultimately, judicial review.

            Some of the conjecture surrounding this bill's petroleum  
            reduction provision could be addressed by articulating in more  
            detail what it's about and not about.  For example, achieving  
            long-term reductions without loss of mobility, a combination  
            of measures in planning, regulation and incentives, not  
            banning petroleum, and assure adequate reporting and  
            oversight.  The author and the committee may wish to consider  
            amending the bill to spell out a more detailed approach as  

                 Setting a baseline year or fuel volume for the 50%  
                 Providing direction as to which measures to pursue.

                 Requiring more robust reporting and oversight.

                 Providing direction that the target should be met  
               through petroleum alternatives, improved transit,  
               efficiency and planning-based VMT reductions, which don't  


                                                                     SB 350

                                                                    Page  17

               sacrifice mobility or ban/ration petroleum.

                 Exploring offramps to address unforeseen complications.

          1)Natural gas vehicle provisions are misplaced.  The July 8  
            amendments add several provisions to address increased  
            electricity demand resulting from transportation  
            electrification, including a section relating to planning and  
            cost recovery for IOU investment in electric vehicle charging  
            infrastructure.  In the findings of this section, "natural gas  
            vehicles as a short-term measure" along with "fuel cell  
            vehicles" are listed (on page 43, lines 3-4 and 27-30), even  
            though the operative provisions of the section only address  
            electric vehicle charging.  The reference to natural gas  
            vehicles in this section has provoked controversy, both from  
            environmental advocates, who don't view natural gas vehicles  
            as consistent with the state's long-term climate goals, and  
            natural gas vehicles advocates, who don't like declaring that  
            natural gas vehicles are strictly a "short-term" measure.  The  
            controversy could be resolved by simply eliminating these  
            findings, which are not essential, or amending them to refer  
            to "clean vehicles" rather than listing electric, natural gas,  
            and fuel cell vehicles.
