Join us for a discussion with an adviser from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for insights on a range of issues impacting California private utilities. Council Vice-Chair Noah Perch-Ahern will moderate the discussion on regulatory and legal issues, strategic objectives and the water/energy nexus policy development the Commission is currently engaged in. From fracking to cap-and-trade, we'll hear how state and federal regulations impact the water/energy nexus, and how that impact influences the operations of water and energy companies.
We'll also hear from the L.A. Mayor's sustainability team on the City's application for a Green City designation from Volkswagon. This competition is the result of a legal settlement with VW and a winning bid for the designation would come with dollars to invest in air quality improvements.
Additionally, the Council will review our ACCESS Sacramento trip advocacy and discuss priority issues for our ACCESS Washington, D.C. delegation to advocate for in Washington next month.
The Energy, Water & Environmental Sustainability Council focuses on actions to spur clean and green tech innovations, ensure cost-effective water and power delivery, and promote economic growth through sustainable, pro-jobs energy and environmental policies. The Transportation & Goods Movement Council addresses all issues related to our region's mobility - highway, rail, air and transit. 
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval.
