SB 410 (Becker) Electricity interconnection timelines

California Public Utilities Commission Headquarters in San Francisco, California.

Existing law vests the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) with regulatory authority over public utilities, including electrical corporations and requires the CPUC to enforce rules governing the extension of service by electrical corporations.

This bill would require each electrical corporation to provide data to the CPUC on the response time to provide upgraded electrical service to customers for electrification upgrades in buildings, panel upgrades, solar installations, or electric vehicle chargers. The bill would state the intent of the Legislature to improve and report on the time for interconnection for building electrification to help the state meet its 2045 and interim emissions reduction targets.
