Summary

 
The Agricultural Peak Load Reduction Program (APLRP) was developed by the California Energy Commission (CEC) in early June 2001, under the authority of Section 5(b) of California Senate Bill 5x.  This legislation arose from the blackouts and brownouts that hit the state of California during the 2000-2001 winter, caused by a severe imbalance in electricity supply.  The primary goal of SB 5x was to reduce peak period electric demand throughout California.  As a result of this program, water agencies throughout California exceeded expectations in regard to curtailing peak load and were able to do this with lower-than-expected funding. For more information, visit the ITRC CEC APLRP web page.
