California Title 24


The California Energy Commission

was established in 1974 in response to the state's growing energy crisis (via the Warren-Alquist Act). The commission consists of five Governor-appointed Commissioners, who are committed to:

  • - Advancing State Energy Policy
  • - Achieving Energy Efficiency
  • - Certifying Thermal Plants
  • - Preparing for Energy Emergencies
  • - Investing in Energy Innovation
  • - Developing Renewable Energy
  • - Transforming Transportation
  • - Efficacy Programs
