NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY

The draft decision of Commissioner Peevey and Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Malcolm has been made available at http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/PUBLISHED/COMMENT_DECISION/51992.htm
on December 13, 2005. The California Public Utilities Commission recently underscored its commitment to solar resources for assuring the reliability of the state's electricity system in Decision 05-12-___, which increased funding for incentives to solar projects by $300 million in 2006. That order stated our intent to develop additional policies and program elements designed to promote solar development. This order accomplishes that, by making a commitment to provide $2.8 billion of incentives toward solar development over 11 years. We also herein develop complementary policies and rules, set new incentive levels, and address program administration. We refer to the program as the "California Solar Initiative" or CSI.
