This filing represents the Clean Coalition’s reply comments on the California Public Utilities Commission’s (CPUC) Proposed Decision Addressing Competitive Solicitation Framework and Utility Regulatory Incentive Pilot. The Clean Coalition strongly supports the CPUC’s continued efforts both in establishing sourcing mechanisms to animate the market for distributed energy resources and in exploring alternative utility business models. In the comments, the Clean Coalition broadly supported party recommendations for refinements to the proposed utility regulatory incentive pilot and role of the Distribution Planning Advisory Group, proposed use of data sources to indicate price viability ranges, inclusion of Conservation Voltage value, and specifically opposed new proposals for more burdensome approval processes and prohibition of projects below 5 MW.
