I doubt this is truthful. What is the chapter and section of this law?

Common sense would suggest that such a policy would literally pull the plug on the California economy. It is also inconsistent with this recent PG&E press release about the acquisition of a new natural gas fired power plant:

“Pacific Gas and Electric Company today announced it has reached agreement to accelerate the acquisition of the Colusa Generating Station from E&L Westcoast, LLC (E&L Westcoast) to maintain the 2010 target completion date. In addition, PG&E filed an application with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) yesterday for authorization to directly develop and construct the Colusa Generating Station. The CPUC already approved the project, finding that it was cost effective and needed for reliability.”

“The state-of-the-art 657-MW combined cycle natural gas facility utilizes the latest in fuel-efficient technologies to minimize the environmental impact while ensuring reliable electricity at reasonable costs.”
