RES amendment posted

Posted by .

For those who want to dig deep into the renewable electricity legislation, yesterday’s committee amendment has been posted. All utilities but Xcel are required to generate 25% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2025.  Xcel is 30% by 2020, but they do get to count their previously mandated amounts. Surprisingly, the legislation appears to mandate that Xcel achieve that 30% with 25% being wind power and the other 5% being something else.  I’m off to a meeting now, so perhaps more to come later.

    I just took a look at the new RES bill and discussed its provisions. We’ll see what happens in the House and on the floor! I’m not sure if Senator Vandeveer’s attempted amendment in the committee suggests that parliamentary maneuvering will continue or not.
