California Public Utilities Commission Key Developments

California Public Utilities Commission Order Rasier-CA to Pay $7.3 Million Fine or Shut Down

Uber announced that California regulators ordered the company to pay a $7.3 million fine and hand over required information about safety and accessibility - or shut down in the ride service's home state. The California Public Utilities Commission said Uber was the only ride service that did not provide the information. An Uber spokeswoman said the San Francisco company would appeal the fine. The fine was levied against Rasier-CA, a wholly owned Uber subsidiary that operates UberX in California. The company's operating license could be suspended if it does not pay the penalty and supply the required information within 30 days.

California Public Utilities Commission Approves 22 Solar Projects for Southern California Edison as Part of its Solar Photovoltaic Program

Southern California Edison (SCE) announced that it continues to encourage and support the development and interconnection of solar projects within its service territory. SCE has about 125,000 rooftop solar systems installed in its territory, totaling more than 1,000 megawatts. Those systems include residential and non-residential installations, as well as some utility-owned projects. Nearly 600 megawatts are from residential projects. Adding to those totals, SCE recently announced that the California Public Utilities Commission has approved 22 projects totaling 42.6 megawatts of direct current power from the utility's fourth solicitation to obtain electricity from independent power producers as part of its Solar Photovoltaic Program (SPVP). The rooftop projects selected are distributed throughout SCE's service territory and were proposed by two different developers, Borrego and Sun Edison. The power-purchase agreements have been reviewed and approved by the utilities commission. One megawatt of solar in California can power 216 homes, according to calculations from the Solar Energy Industries Association. As part of the procurement effort, SCE also sought projects to serve the Orange County area that could enhance the reliability of the local grid. One of the projects approved by the commission is a 1.63-megawatt direct current rooftop project in Orange County, where renewable generation in the densely populated area is currently less than 3%.
