Regulatory Update

CalChoice continues to monitor proceedings at the California Public Utilities Commission on the Provider of Last Resort (POLR) and the Financial Service Requirement (FSR). On May 24, 2022, Administrative Law Judge Ehren D. Seybert ruled to approve the request from CalCCA for an extension of time to respond to proceeding (R. 21-03-011) – Order Instituting Rulemaking to Implement Senate Bill 520 and Address Other Matters Related to Provider of Last Resort

In its request, CalCCA proposed a one-month extension for the filing of opening and reply comments, resulting in new deadlines of June 27, 2022, and July 11, 2022, respectively. CalCCA indicated that the extension of time is necessary to ensure parties can fully develop proposals related to the Financial Security Requirement (FSR) and reentry fees.
