Assembly Bill 162 (Statute of 2009) and Senate Bill 1305 (Statutes of 1997) require utilities to disclose information to consumers about the energy resources used to generate the electricity sold in the form of a Power Content Label created by the California Energy Commission. This label provides customers with reliable information about the electricity sources, enabling customers to easily compare the power content of one electric service product with that of others. The power content label is similar to a "nutrition label" for electricity.

    percentage of renewables will vary from the RPS Compliance for 2018 due to a difference in
    calculation methodologies as required. Renewable purchases also include REC-only transactions
    (without energy).
