This bill would require the CPUC to ensure that the state is on track to deliver specified transmission capacities by certain dates. Would require the CPUC to annually submit a report to the Legislature that describes the progress made towards achieving those transmission capacity goals, identifies challenges to achieving those goals, and makes recommendations on legislation necessary to overcome those challenges. The bill would require the CPUC, on or before November 1, 2026, to conduct a study on the cost savings and efficiencies that may result from using reconductoring and other grid enhancing technologies to improve grid reliability. It would require the CPUC to post the results of the study on its internet website and to submit to the Legislature a report on the results of the study.
