    Notice of Meetings

    On Tuesday, September 27, 2011, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on energy governance in California. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    The Little Hoover Commission is reviewing the state’s coordination of energyrelated activities. This study will include an organizational evaluation of entities that share authority over energy policy, permitting and regulation. The Commission will examine previous consolidation efforts and assess how the state’s energy-related organizations are working together to achieve state goals and facilitate local efforts to improve the generation and delivery of power to consumers.

    At the September 27, 2011 hearing, the Commission will hear an overview of the current governance landscape from a former chairman of the California Energy Commission who today is senior vice president, government affairs and communications, for BrightSource Energy. Next, the Commission will hear about collaboration efforts from the executive director of the California Public Utilities Commission. Following that witness, a Stanford University professor will update the Commission on market deregulation, then the senior advisor to the Governor for renewable energy facilities will discuss the Renewable Energy Action Team. Finally, the director of planning and community development for Kern County will testify about state-local coordination.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments. Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room in the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.

    On Monday, September 26, 2011, the Energy Governance Subcommittee of the Little Hoover Commission will hold a briefing by the Attorney General’s Office on the status of post-energy crisis litigation. The meeting will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room.
