AB1139

This one came through the Legislature but no doubt influenced by a lobbyist. It is concurrent but not the same as the NEM 3.0 process. I does appear to reverse some NEM 1.0 and 2.0 protections. A brief read picked up a reference to Non Bypassable Charges.
Here is one group that is opposed.
I got that link from another site that referred to AB1139 but the link to suggested letter clearly refers to the CPUC docket.

Didn't see this discussed anywhere. It is a change in the CARE rate guidelines but it attempts to shift the cost of doing that to the NEM agreements. I could not tell how far it is or even if it is still in a committee but one solar group is already lobbying agaist it.
It's in early committee work, according to this status page:

AB1139 — Bill History

The author is Lorena Gonzalez, out of San Diego. She's best known to me for trying to pick a fight with Elon Musk on twitter. Her campaign contributions came mostly from unions, but she also took over $60k from energy companies — including SoCal Edison, Sempra (parent of SDG&E), as well as oil companies such as Chevron and Phillips 66.

Makes perfect sense. I would not be surprised if one of the IOU lobbyists drafted it for her. If they can give this bill visability it makes their NEM 3.0 requests look pale.
