Welcome to CEDARS

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) welcomes you to the California Energy Data and Reporting System (CEDARS). 

CEDARS securely manages California Energy Efficiency Program data reported to the Commission by Investor Owned Utilities, Regional Energy Networks (RENs), and certain Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs.) 

Data available on this site are submitted in annual budget filings, quarterly savings claims, and monthly report summaries.  The system processes these data through quality checks and validations, and automates cost effectiveness test calculations using the Cost Effectiveness Test tool (CET).  This site contains no personally identifiable information about California energy customers or energy program participants.  


CEDARS is optimized for use with Chrome and Firefox browsers.
