DECISION GRANTING IN PART PETITION FOR MODIFICATION OF CALCULATION OF ANNUAL PROCUREMENT TARGET FOR RPS COMPLIANCE
The Joint Petitioners' Petition for Modification of Commission Decisions 06-10-019 and 06-10-050 is granted in part. The calculation of the annual procurement target (APT) of renewable energy procurement for compliance with the California renewables portfolio standard (RPS) is changed prospectively. For 2010 and any later years in which the APT for RPS compliance is 20% of retail sales, the calculation will be based on the current year's retail sales, rather than the prior year's retail sales as provided in Decision (D.) 06-10-019 and D.06-10-050.
Because D.07-07-025 modified the calculations for APT set out in D.06-10-019, on our own motion we make conforming modifications to D.07-07-025, but do not modify D.06-10-019. We also make conforming modifications to D.08-05-029 on our own motion.
