California's peak electricity demand occurred on July 24, 2006, at 2:44 pm, 50,270 Megawatts. Since then measures to reduce peak load have resulted in decreased peak demand. In 2011, the peak load was 45,545 MW, on September 7. By 2020 California is required to obtain at least 33% of electricity from renewable sources other than large hydro. The legislature is considering new regulations in 2013 which would compel utilities to invest in energy storage technology, the first such legislation in the United States.
