CleanPowerSF implementation plan could be approved within two months 

San Francisco plans to send a community choice aggregation implementation plan on Wednesday to California Public Utilities Commission officials for review and approval.

The implementation plan outlines how a new power provider would compete with Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. on power sales to residents and businesses. The document is scheduled to be approved by city lawmakers on Tuesday.

The CPUC has up to 90 days to review the plan under California’s community choice aggregation laws.

“The CPUC was able to do Marin’s implementation plan in 60 days,” San Francisco Public Utilities Commission official Michael Campbell said during a San Francisco Local Agency Formation Commission hearing on Friday. “I’m hoping that we can have it be 60 days or even less.”

The SFPUC is in negotiations with Power Choice LLC, a consortium of companies that aim to secure the contract to run San Francisco’s so-called CleanPowerSF program.

“We’re working hard and working over weekends — as is Power Choice,” Campbell said. “We’re pushing very aggressively to have something on paper in the coming month of March.”
