SB 386:

Backsliding on California’s Clean Energy Goals

Opens the door to significant weakening of California’s landmark clean energy program, the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), by allowing large hydropower to count towards the RPS requirements for a certain set of electricity providers, setting a precedent for other utilities to demand similar concessions for non-RPS eligible energy sources.
