The analyst may act as a team leader and project coordinator on policy and projects to support the interconnection of electric generation and storage to the distribution electric grid.

The analyst will make recommendations based on independent analysis of regulatory, policy and technical issues. They will develop analyses for and make recommendations regarding the CPUC’s rulemakings via a wide range of work products. They will also review and provide policy feedback on proposed legislative bills, and/or oversee implementation of programs that result from CPUC and legislative processes. The rulemaking process and the associated policy recommendations will involve coordination with technical standards for smart inverters and other Distributed Energy Resources (DERs). They will also support internal processes, coordination with other sections, and General Rate Case proceedings.

Support of informal facilitation of disputes between Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs) and protestants and policy development forums may be required.
