Actual 2011 Renewable Resources 15.5 billion kWh* 21.1% of SCEs portfolio
Small Hydro 6% Solar 6% Biomass 6%

Renewable Resources 28.3 Goals (billion kWh)

15.5 83% Increase

Geothermal 47% Wind 35%

Not to Scale

2011 Actual Deliveries

2020 33% RPS Goal

Preliminary EIA energy data** (kWh) indicates that in 2010 SCE procured: 49% of the nation's and 59% of California's geothermal generation 55% of the nation's and 87% of California's solar generation 5% of the nation's and 64% of California's wind generation

Many options exist for renewables developers. Bulk of RPS goals are met using competitive solicitations.

Increased risk of negative pricing due to oversupply and congestion Already observed in other regions as their renewable penetration has increased
Texas, ERCOT: Prices were below zero for an eighth of all hours 22,669 MW in West Texas in 2008 Pacific Northwest, BPA: Implemented a Negative Pricing Policy to curtail generators in 2011 after severe oversupply events in June 2010

7,699 MW

Flexible resources must be part of the solution to balance variable output to better match generation to demand

California has a robust and highly competitive renewables market. SCE looks to competitive markets as the primary means for renewables procurement. Though there are barriers to renewable development, SCE is doing its part to address some of those barriers.
