- California’s Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E
- Many Commercial & Industrial DA Companies Currently Save 10-25%
Pismo Beach, CA, June 02, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — On April 21, 2015, California Senate Bill SB286 passed a Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee (11-0) and indicates the legislature’s desire to support both individual choice (increase the DA CAP) and renewable energy.
This is Great News – and is Electricity Deregulation in Action
Many companies currently participating in the DA program appreciate substantial savings between 10-25% on their generation costs over fully-bundled utility rates, which is why the DA program is so popular and in high demand.
Going forward, we expect the bill to be amended to either phase in the CAP increases or impose some alternative type of participation CAP, and include a renewable energy purchase obligation for new participants.
The Committee Chairman supports the bill and would like to see the bill amended to increase the CAP by 8,000 GWh and would also like to see any new participants be taken from the utility wait list.

October 18, 2013, 9:27 am — /EPR NETWORK/ — Energy Bulbs takes a pride in being able to supply bulbs to all different sectors of the market and the GU10 range has been a very important range over the years. The original GU range, which appeared some years ago when ceiling lights became a fashion in Kitchens and Bathrooms throughout the newer houses and apartment blocks of the British housing market. The original bulbs were standard 60 watt bulbs, which gave a much better lighting system to areas where a good light source increased the workload and the quality of work. Businesses and production units followed and the GU10 lamp became a highly used unit. They are however fairly costly to run in this form and the bulb life is relatively short which means extra maintenance and also these bulbs can often blow a fuse when they short out which puts the area into total darkness.
