Electric Costs and Retail Choice Branch/Retail Choice Section:
Energy Division’s Retail Choice section advises the Commission and provides technical expertise and implementation oversight on policies and regulations related to Community Choice Aggregation and Direct Access, which play a central role in implementing the state's goals in meeting carbon emission reduction targets and maintaining system reliability.
Since the launch of energy market restructuring, California has enabled customer choice for providing electricity. The growth of Community Choice Aggregation has led to significant changes in the energy market. These market changes require the Commission to reconsider the regulatory rules to ensure that state can meet its reliability requirements and greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
Under the general direction of the Project and Program Supervisor, the analyst will advise and assist high-level decision-makers such as Commissioners, Judges, and Energy Division management. The analyst may act as a team leader, facilitator and project coordinator on decision making processes and as a liaison for Community Choice Aggregators (CCA) and Energy Service Providers (ESP). The analyst will evaluate and make recommendations regarding how the CCAs and ESPs will achieve the clean energy and reliability targets under different market conditions. The analyst will coordinate with a number of proceedings across the Commission and with other state agencies, including Renewable Portfolio Standard, Integrated Resource Planning, Resource Adequacy, and CAISO market issues. The analyst develop analysis for and make recommendations in the policy-setting rulemakings via a wide range of work products and/or oversee implementation of programs that result from these CPUC and legislative processes.
