Senate Unveils Energy Efficiency and Renewable Portfolio Standards Redo

Members of the Senate Public Utilities Committee this week unveiled a new version of House Bill 114, legislation to revise energy efficiency and renewable energy portfolio standards.

The new bill incorporates tracking requirements on qualified customers who may opt out of paying the energy-efficiency rider. The bill also contains provisions to relax overly restrictive siting policies governing the placement of commercial scale wind farms.

A vote was expected next week, but may not occur before the summer recess. Click to view a comparison of the Senate revisions. 5/17/2018
