About CPUC Expos

The CPUC conducts small business expos throughout the state to promote procurement opportunities and educate small businesses on important topics such as “How to Do Business with State Agencies and the Utilities."  The purpose of these expos is to:

  • Help connect small businesses to utilities and government procurement specialists.
  • Educate small businesses on the benefits of becoming certified as a small business, woman-owned, minority-owned, and/or disabled veteran-owned business.
  • Enlighten small businesses of utilities’ best business practices and “how to get in the door” with utility companies.
  • Inform small businesses of utilities and government contract opportunities.
  • Provide networking with other small business owners.
