(Becker D) Water and Energy Savings Act.
Current Text: Amended: 3/30/2023
Status: 4/17/2023-From committee: Do pass as amended and re-refer to Com. on E.Q. (Ayes 12. Noes 3.) (April 10).
Summary: Existing law requires each utility to maintain records of the energy usage data of all buildings to which they provide service for at least the most recent 12 complete calendar months, and to deliver or otherwise provide that aggregated energy usage data for each covered building, as defined, to the owner, as specified.
This bill would expand those requirements, beginning January 1, 2025, to include each utility that provides water service and its water usage data. By imposing new duties on utilities that provide water service, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.
