									                            Draft Agenda for the
     CSI Low-Income Incentive Program for Single-Family Homes Workshop
              California Public Utilities Commission Auditorium

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Energy Division will hold a
workshop to review a staff-proposed plan for the CSI Low-Income Incentive Program for
single-family homes. The workshop will be held on Monday, April 30, 2007 from 10:00
a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Commission Auditorium, CPUC, 505 Van Ness Ave., San
Francisco, California. Please note: this workshop addresses solar incentives for existing
single-family, low-income homes - the California Energy Commission oversees incentive
programs for new affordable housing.

SB1 requires the CPUC to allocate no less than 10 percent of the overall CSI budget to
low-income residential housing. The CPUC Energy Division staff issued a proposal on
how to deliver the incentives and implement the low-income program for single-family
homes on April 17, 2007. The purpose of this workshop is to allow interested parties and
stakeholders the opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion to facilitate
understanding of the Energy Division proposal in advance of parties’ opportunity to file
written comments on the proposal.

Parties are requested to file formal comments on the Energy Division proposal by May
11, 2007, and reply comments by May 21, 2007. Staff welcomes informal written
comments on the staff draft paper from interested persons or organizations that are not
official parties to this proceeding by May 21, 2007; please direct them to Melicia Charles
at mvc@cpuc.ca.gov. Please cite the paper’s section number and question number in
comments. Following written comments, both formal and informal, the Commission will
draft a proposed decision on the solar incentive program for low-income, single-family
