Why join IEPA?

We Help

Helping represent energy producers

Long History

Since 1980

We Got Your Back

Safeguard the interests of members


Thank you for your interest in the Independent Energy Producers Association (IEP).

IEP is California’s leading trade association representing the interests of developers and operators of independent energy facilities, as well as independent power marketers.  IEP has been active in representing the interests of the industry before California’s regulatory commissions, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and the legislature since 1982.  Our primary goals are to safeguard the interests of new and currently operating independent energy projects, and ensure that California remains a healthy and vibrant market for continued operation and development.

 These Special Funds afford member companies guaranteed representation in specific regulatory issues or proceedings affecting their facilities, planned projects, or market positions.

Throughout the year IEP interacts with its members through a variety of forums.  Weekly conference calls are held to manage day-to-day activities of the industry.  Our policy setting body, the IEP Board, meets monthly, with one policy planning retreat each year.  In addition, in the fall of each year, IEP holds an Annual Meeting that is open to the public.  Conference topics center around subjects of topical interest with discussion panels comprised of industry experts providing up to date information and debate.

IEP’s efforts will have significant impact on the success of your existing facilities, future projects, and market opportunities.  We welcome your participation and involvement in IEP, which will strengthen our industry-wide voice.

You may download the application for membership for review.  Our Board meets to consider applications for membership each month.  Should you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Jamie Parker, 916-448-9499.
