Progress of EPIC Program Focus of Workshop in Southern California

California’s integration of renewable, distributed energy onto the grid through its Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program will be the focus of a June 22 workshop in Westminster.

The workshop will provide industry and the public a forum to learn about distribution system challenges related to renewable energy.

A focus of the workshop will be the progress being made on Advanced Distribution Automation (ADA) and the increasing role it plays on intelligently controlling and distributing renewable electric power to the grid.

The EPIC program, run by the California Energy Commission, fills critical funding gaps within the energy innovation pipeline – from a resilient grid to near zero-net-energy residential homes and commercial buildings.
 The workshop will be conducted by the California Energy Commission and will include representatives of Pacific Gas and Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric Company and Southern California Edison.

The workshop continues ongoing coordination and understanding among administrators, parties, and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and also seeks to raise awareness and visibility of EPIC investments.

Commissioners from the Energy Commission and CPUC may also be in attendance.
