This filing represents the Clean Coalition’s comments on the Renewable Energy Transmission Initiative 2.0 Plenary Report Public Review Draft, emphasizing that California’s transmission needs to meet Renewable Portfolio Standards and greenhouse gas targets will require consideration in the growth of distributed generation (DG) resources. In many cases, DG resources will be able to meet additional energy needs without transmission investsment and may be cost-effective alternatives to centralized renewables and the transmission investments needed to support them. In addition, the comments highlighted the Transmission Access Charges market distortion on DG resources and how that may distort the projected need for additional transmission.
