Each year, the California Energy Commission (CEC) administers $130 million through the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) to invest in clean energy development in California, providing a benefit to our environment and helping lower costs for millions of energy users. AB 523 will dedicate a minimum of 25% of this annual money toward projects that exist in and benefit low-income communities who are the most vulnerable to pollution and its environmental and health concerns. (This bill is now law.)
