BACKGROUND: At Pres. Picker’s request, the DER Action Plan was developed by Energy Division to provide a coherent vision for the CPUC’s activities on distributed resources and facilitate the coordination of numerous proceedings that affect DER deployment. The intent is for the DER Action Plan to be a “living document” that will continue to be refined over time. This workshop is an opportunity to discuss the draft DER Action Plan. Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit their pre-workshop comments by COB on Tuesday, October 11 and their post-workshop comments by COB on Monday, October 31 at this on-line portal. (A separate email will also be sent shortly to ensure parties are aware of these separate deadlines.) Following the workshop and with subsequent additional refinements, Pres. Picker is looking for endorsement of the DER Action Plan at an upcoming Commission meeting.
