CMUA was initially formed in 1932 and incorporated in 1933 to represent the interests of California’s community-owned electric utilities before the California Legislature. Following our many legislative successes, CMUA launched a new program in 2010 to increase its advocacy efforts before both administrative and regulatory agencies that may have a significant impact on California’s energy and water utility operations.
Today, CMUA represents its members’ interests on energy and water issues before the California Legislature, the Governor’s Office and the maze of regulatory bodies, such as the California Energy Commission, the California Air Resources Board, the Department of Water Resources, the California Independent System Operator, and the State Water Resources Control Board.
Incredible and unprecedented news headlines concerning our world seem to flash across our screens almost on a daily basis, each one more astounding than the previous. And while we sit back and marvel at how fast things have changed from just a few years ago, we realize just how different things will be tomorrow.
Dear CMUA Members, Allied Organizations and Agencies,
It has been a time of great consequence for CMUA, both in terms of what’s happening with power and water issues in California, as well as how CMUA serves you, our members.
Governor Brown set the stage early on in 2015 with energy, climate, and water policy at the forefront of his agenda. This reflected a growing global concern about the dangers of climate change, which California experienced in the form of record high temperatures, a historically low snow pack, and dwindling water supplies in reservoirs.
