SB 527 (Min) Equitable Zonal Decarbonization Program

Existing law requires the California Energy Commission to establish the Equitable Building Decarbonization Program, which includes establishing the direct install program to fund certain projects and remediation and safety measures to facilitate the installation of new technologies and a statewide incentive program for low-carbon building technologies, as specified.

This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact future legislation to direct the Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to establish the Equitable Zonal Decarbonization Program, which would establish a small-scale community-targeted decarbonization program, and to require the CPUC to fund, administer, and implement the program to ensure rate affordability, dedicated and prioritized funding for disadvantaged and low-income customers, and the development of high road jobs and workforces.
