U.S.A: California ALJ proposes statewide renewable energy procurement for utilities

20 Mar 19: A California Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) on Monday proposed statewide procurement for renewable resources, finding that proposed resource plans from utilities and other power providers will not reduce greenhouse gases enough to meet state goals. The proposed decision from ALJ Julie Fitch would refuse to adopt the combined integrated resource plan (IRP) from the state's utilities and community choice aggregators (CCA) because it "does not meet the GHG emissions goals" and could challenge reliability.
