On October 18th, 2007, the California Public Utilities Commission adopted a
decision requiring California's investor-owned utilities to prepare a
single, statewide Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan for the years 2009-2020.
This plan will be developed collaboratively with input from the California
Energy Commission, Regional Air Quality Management Districts, publicly-owned
utilities, the private sector, research institutions, and other key
stakeholders. A draft plan will be filed on February 1st, 2008 and a final
plan on May 15th, 2008.

The decision, setting in motion the planning process, adopts aggressive
targets for new residential and commercial buildings in California. It
states that all new residential buildings and all new commercial buildings
in the state shall be zero net energy by 2020 and 2030 respectively.

For details on how to participate in the development of the California
Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan please, see
