Additional Panelists TBD

Is California on track to reach Governor Jerry Brown’s goal of having a third of the state’s electricity come from renewable sources by 2020? Many projects have received federal financing and a green light from regulators, but will they ever really get built? Smart meters, tiered pricing and net metering are bringing big changes to the way California generates and pays for electricity. Are regulators doing their job of looking out for consumers amid all this change? Are rising energy prices hurting California’s competitiveness? Reporters covering the energy beat will discuss the state’s power plays and what’s at stake for consumers.
