Offshore Wind 0224

Offshore wind capacity totaling 4,700 MW is among the new resources envisioned to meet a procurement order issued by the California Public Utilities Commission on Feb. 23.

State energy regulators ordered California load-serving entities to procure 4 GW of supplemental generation in addition to procurement ordered in 2021 to meet projected electricity demand and maintain reliability.

The California Public Utilities Commission on Feb. 23 approved a January proposed decision that recommended the addition of 4 GW of new zero-emission energy resources for 2026 and 2027 on top of the 11.5 GW it previously required in a June 2021 midterm reliability order [D21-06-035] (California Energy Markets No. 1727).
