City of Vernon California

Renewable Portfolio Standard

Senate Bill 2 of the First Extraordinary Session ("SBX1 2") requires all load serving entities in California to achieve a 33% Renewable Portfolio Standard ( RPS) by 2020, with interim targets of an average of 20% through 2011- 2013, 25% by 2016 and 33% by 2020. Additionally, SBX1 2 requires publicly owned utilities ( POUs) to develop a procurement plan and to adopt an enforcement program ( by 1/ 1/ 2012). This renewable resources procurement plan and enforcement program ("SBX1 2 Compliance Plan") represents the City of Vernon' s commitment to renewable energy procurement consistent with the legislative intent of SBX1 2.
