Public Utilities Commission.


Under existing law, the Public Utilities Commission has regulatory authority over public utilities. Existing law prohibits a person or corporation from merging, acquiring, or controlling, either directly or indirectly, any public utility organized and doing business in this state without first securing authorization to do so from the commission. Existing law requires that the commission make specific findings, or consider specific criteria or elements, before authorizing such a merger, acquisition, or change in control when a party to that transaction has gross annual California revenues exceeding a specified amount. This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions relating to mergers, acquisitions, and changes in control. Existing law requires the commission to make various reports to the Legislature relating to energy efficiency. This bill would consolidate 3 of those reports into a single report and, in doing so, would increase the frequency with which certain energy efficiency information would be reported. Existing law requires electrical and gas corporations to perform home weatherization services for low-income customers, as specified. This bill would update a cross-reference related to that requirement.
