Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Electric utility restructuring; regional transmission entities. Delays the date by which incumbent electric utilities with transmission capacity must join a regional transmission entity (RTE). The Electric Utility Restructuring Act originally required utilities to join an RTE by January 1, 2001. This measure provides that utilities shall not join an RTE prior to July 1, 2004. Utilities are required to file an application to join an RTE by July 1, 2003, and to transfer management and control of transmission assets to the RTE by January 1, 2005, subject to State Corporation Commission approval. Prior to approving a request to join an RTE, the Commission must determine that the action will (i) ensure that consumers' needs for economic and reliable transmission are met and (ii) meet the transmission needs of electric generation suppliers that do not own, operate, control or have an entitlement to transmission capacity. In addition, requests for approval shall include a study of comparative costs and benefits, including an analysis of the economic effects of the transfer on consumers and the effects of transmission congestion costs. This bill has an emergency clause.
