The program will continue to operate until 2029 with renewed annual funding of up to $100 million per year from the California Climate Investments initiative. Funds originate from cap-and-trade auction proceeds deposited in the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund and used to further the state’s objectives to decarbonize and curb climate change.
Collections for each funding cycle are expected to be available between December and February, and the funds for each utility territory may be released at different times. Collections are based on each utility’s Energy Resource Recovery Account (ERRA) or Energy Cost Adjustment Clause (ECAC).
