Electrical Distribution Utility Use of Allowance Value

Refinery

The Cap-and-Trade Regulation requires each electrical distribution utility (EDU) that receives allowance allocation pursuant to section 95892 of the Cap-and-Trade Regulation to report to the Executive Officer, by June 30 of each calendar year, the use of allocated allowance value received for the prior calendar year.  Under this reporting requirement, each EDU must describe how its use of allocated allowance value meets the requirements of section 95892 of the Cap-and-Trade Regulation and the requirements of the California Health and Safety Code sections 38500 et seq., known as AB 32.  These requirements focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and benefiting ratepayers.  An EDU's use of allocated allowance value must achieve both of these goals.

The Electrical Distribution Utility Use of Allowance Value Form can be used to report the use of allocated allowance value of the previous year’s vintage and, optionally, any allocated allowance value from prior years that was not previously reported as used.  For example, in 2016, an EDU can use the form to report the use of allocated vintage 2015 allowance value and optionally may use the form to report the use of any allocated allowance value of vintages 2013 and 2014 not previously reported as used.

The information contained in this form must be received by the Air Resources Board no later than 5:00 p.m. on June 30 of the reporting year.  If an EDU elects to use the provided form, ARB requests that an electronic copy of the spreadsheet be e-mailed to edu-allocation@arb.ca.gov.  Please mail the signed paper copy of the form to the following address:

Program Development Section
CCPEB, 6th Floor
Air Resources Board
