Go Directly to the EPIC Legislative Center

The Energy Policy Initiatives Center (EPIC) identifies and monitors California legislation related to energy and climate change. We have recently updated our online Legislative Center with summaries of bills that have either been signed into law or sent to the Governor for action. passed out of their house of origin and are advancing in the legislative process.

Notable bills include:

  • SB 1340 (Kehoe) would expand funding and financing options for residential plug-in electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
  • AB 2514 (Skinner) would required the CPUC or local governing board of a municipal utility to establish a proceeding to  establish, if appropriate, energy storage system procurement targets for each load-serving entity or municipal utility.
  • AB 2696 (Bass) and SB 675 (Steinberg) seek to expand green job education and training.

Notably absent from the list of enrolled bills is SB 722 (Simitian), which would have increased the requirements of the state's renewable portfolio standard to 33% by 2020. The legislative session closed before final action could be taken on SB 722.
