HB 760; A1 - House Amendment A1 2015

This Amendment would freeze the states renewable energy portfolio standard requirements at 6%. The mandate increased to 6% this year and is currently scheduled to double to 12.5% by 2021. This Amendment would also freeze the incremental cost cap which is the amount energy providers can pass along to customers to help recover the additional cost of being forced to buy renewable energy. Civitas believes the conservative position is to oppose government mandates on energy provision that drive up electric bills. The conservative vote is yes.
