Decision 11-01-016 January 13, 2011
BEFORE THE PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
Order Instituting Rulemaking to Continue Implementation and Administration of California Renewables Portfolio Standard Program.
(Filed May 25, 2006)
DECISION MODIFYING D.06-10-050 REGARDING AUTHORIZATION FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF CONSULTANT COSTS
In Decision 06-10-050, the Commission authorized its Executive Director to hire and manage one or more contractors to perform certain tasks regarding the renewables portfolio standard program. The costs were limited to $400,000 per year through 2010, to be paid by the ratepayers of the three largest electric utilities. The utilities were authorized to record the costs when paid through December 31, 2010. Unavoidable delays, however, have occurred in completing the contracted work. This decision authorizes the utilities to record the costs when paid through December 31, 2011, but does not increase the total reimbursable costs. We do this by modifying Decision 06-10-050, with the revised language shown in Appendix A. This proceeding is closed.
