-- statewide green energy requirements could have cost in California a lot of green.
-- new nonpartisan.
Report from the little Hoover commission says the Golden State is rushing into being the new green state weight quickly.
Costs from all these new policies could at out slamming consumers and businesses that commission's executive director stored -- right now.
With more so basically you're asking the government to sit down and figure out how much this is going to cost people is that we -- after.
Exactly commission started from the point of view that.
The -- start important was that the AB 32 the greenhouse gas reduction.
Emission reduction act plus the -- goal to achieve 33% renewables.
By 20/20 and the question that came to the commission.
Was do we have the organizational structure.
To achieve this and so the commission started looking to that commission came to conclusion that.
They could probably what we're from witnesses that said that we could meet our renewable goal but -- the -- of the question came up of costs and reliability and the commission.
Found that we did not have an up to date.
Assessment of how much all in.
All of our so gorgeous Lionhead with this plan and we have absolutely no idea what it's gonna cost the average person is that -- -- -- We have estimates for part of -- but because of our kind of balkanized.
Governance structure here we have the PUC we have the energy commission we have the independent system operator we don't have a way to look at the whole thing all one time so we don't have a way to.
Take in the totality of costs and -- transmission.
And I am -- -- inclination is that it's gonna cost a whole lot and that when people see that number they're gonna be shocked and horrified is that we think it's gonna happen.
No we're saying we want to know how much it's going to cost we know it's gonna cost more we don't know how much more.
We think that it's important to prepare ratepayers and businesses.
And the best way to do that is to have a a sophisticated thorough analysis of what everything all is gonna cost.
See you want to governor Jerry Brown you say hey listen you guys got -- you know come up with an idea how much this is gonna cost and disclose its vehicles that they can make an educated decision about whether or not.
This makes sense what.
-- -- -- We haven't heard a response so far they have the report they -- they're given -- read.
-- all of our recommendations are just that their recommendations.
And the governor is in the perfect position because he appoints.
People all these different boards and he's got the greatest scope of control over that's.
I still feel like there's almost no way he's gonna come back and say you know what we're gonna sit down and crunch the numbers and do the math frightening to have any hope is gonna come back -- -- about.
I think this is question a lot of people or interest -- them and we certainly got the talent here it's a question of of pulling together.
The experts in government outside a government and and really having you know -- political will to.
To come up with a and that's -- not you're gonna get a hard number what you're gonna get is an analysis that has trade offs and that and and estimates and dollars.
I mean -- there are no hard and fast numbers in government we've all realized that if he doesn't come back and say yeah we're gonna do it.
What do you gonna do and how much time are you gonna get them.
Well we -- -- you know it's like you we're not the ultimatum business were in the recommendation business and we hope that that others will also encourage him to do the same thing.
What we're looking for -- discussion so that we can sequence these things in and order that achieves our polls.
At the least cost okay -- and it's a good fight let us know we can do to help but if you get a response please call us because we -- -- now.
Very good thank you very much -- our right.
