The RES-BCT program (formerly AB 2466) was established by the legislature effective January 1, 2009, and is codified in Section 2830 of the Public Utilities Code. It allows a Local Government with one or more eligible renewable generating facilities to export energy to the grid and receive generation credits to benefitting accounts of the same Local Government (AB 1031 expanded applicability to universities). AB 512, signed into law in 2011 and effective on January 1, 2012, further modified this program to increase the generator size limit to 5 MW per generation account.
