Cap and trade program details

Cap and Trade Program Details

  • Greenhouse gas emissions in CA to be reduced to 1990 levels by 2020

  • GHG are reported and regulated, including emissions associated with imported electricity

  • Emissions of GHG to be covered with allowances

  • Number of available allowances capped and declines each year

  • Allowances obtained through auction or trades

  • Price of allowances set by market


Imported supplemental energy

Imported Supplemental Energy


Water energy nexus

Water/Energy Nexus

  • CA Energy Commission estimated 19% of the power consumed in CA was water related

    • 75% occurs at the end-user

  • 8% of water consumed domestically is devoted to producing energy – 25,000 AF/day

  • Even renewable energy facilities can require significant amounts of water

    • Desert solar plants can impact Colorado River water accounting for California
