Energy Sustainability Plan
Supporting the Climate Action Plan
Energy opportunities are evolving, and the plan will look into the future at carbon markets and opportunities to use renewable energy, energy storage systems like batteries, Time of Use programs, and other efficiency measures. The plan will identify funding options and create a forecasting methodology that accounts for climate change, energy costs, carbon allowance market changes and other variables. Not all options offer equal benefits, so a methodology to evaluate different programs, projects, and operations strategies will be developed. This plan could help identify new approaches to work with energy utilities and programs within the water industry that would support California’s goals for climate change resiliency.
