Long Term Procurement Plans of California Utilities


Synapse analyzed the Long Term Procurement Plans of three investor-owned utilities for the California Office of the Ratepayer Advocate, including aspects of competitive procurement procedures, least cost planning, risk management metrics and processes, and prepared prefiled testimony on those topics. In addition, Synapse evaluated novel proposals under which the investor-owned utilities are to auction off the energy rights to certain resources procured for their capacity value only, as well as providing support to the Office in mediation workshops on the energy rights auction issue.
