SB836 by Duncan (Relating to the state's goal for electric generation capacity by renewable energy technologies and the rate treatment of utility expenditures for interconnecting generating capacity by certain renewable technologies.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The Public Utility Commission indicates that any costs associated with the bill could be absorbed within existing resources.
Local Government Impact
It is anticipated that there would be no direct local government impact as a result of the bill, although local tax bases in counties designated as competitive renewable energy generation (CREG) zones could increase with the development of more renewable energy generation projects.
