Written Comments, Questions and Answers received during the October 28, 2020 Online Engagement Panel Webinar Meeting:

The waverider buoy is one of the few offshore wave monitoring installations in this area of the coast. Is there potential to have Cal Poly or another insititution, for example, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, take over upkeep of the buoy? Perhaps PG&E could commit to continued funding for this?

Response 1 - That is unlikely, PG&E only funds items directly related to utility operations. A successor could take over the asset subject to state approval. Any transfer of assets requires approval from the CA Public Utilities Commission via a filing known as an 851. Utility applies to the CPUC to seek approval to divest the asset. Further, the bouy is subejct to lease from state lands commission.
