SB1910 by Rodriguez (Relating to the delay of the transition to competition for an electric utility located in the Western Electricity Coordinating Council service area and net metering requirements and energy efficiency goals and programs for such utility.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Utilities Code relating to the delay of the transition to competition for certain electric utilities. The bill would establish specific steps to introduce retail competition in the service area of certain electric utilities. The bill would define and make previsions for the interconnection of distributed renewable generation in certain instances. The bill would allow certain electric utilities to directly market energy efficiency and renewable energy programs and provide rebate or incentive funds directly to customers.
Based on the analysis of the Public Utility Commission, it is assumed that duties and responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be accomplished by utilizing existing resources.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
