Senior Energy Equity Analyst - JC-437401

Energy Division/ Electric Rates, Customer Generation and Demand Response/Rate Discounts

Energy Division is seeking a Senior Analyst to develop policy and oversee implementation of policies that affect low-income electric ratepayers, including low-income energy discount programs such as California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) and Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) and other emerging state government initiatives related to energy savings and affordability in residential populations. Under the general direction of the Program and Project Supervisor, the Senior Energy Equity Analyst will support California’s efforts to improve energy affordability and equity for impacted populations, such as disadvantaged communities, hard to reach, rural, tribal, and low income populations.


In implementing policies related to the CARE and FERA programs, the analyst will be required to assess the historical performance of the programs and improve the programs' ability to meet policy goals. The analyst will be responsible for developing recommendations for program budgets, enrollment targets, enrollment and verification processes, and other program parameters. Throughout the development and implementation of these recommendations, the analyst will need to consult with a wide variety of stakeholders, including the Low Income Oversight Board, the Department of Community Services and Development, other state agencies, advocacy groups, community based organizations, and utility service providers. The analyst will also be expected to proactively identify gaps in the existing programs and ways to expand access to vulnerable populations.


In support of developing new policy, the analyst will conduct original policy analysis to recommend innovative ways for more effectively reaching populations in need with utility affordability programs. The analyst will take a broad and strategic view, considering the Commission’s goals of 1) optimally meeting state Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction goals affordably, reliably, and safely, and 2) ensuring affordable energy bills.


In these efforts, the incumbent will collaborate with state and local government agencies that have a shared mission in meeting the essential energy needs of disadvantaged and underserved communities while minimizing negative externalities. The incumbent will also coordinate with other divisions across the commission on emerging commission proceedings.


The analyst will also be expected to provide more general support including, but not limited to, creating, facilitating and conducting workshops, representing the Commission on relevant working groups, and responding to information requests, both internal and external.
