AN ACT CONCERNING TECHNICAL AND MINOR REVISIONS TO AND REPEAL OF OBSOLETE PROVISIONS OF ENERGY AND TECHNOLOGY STATUTES

SUMMARY: This act eliminates the requirement that the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority's (PURA) database on electric companies and competitive suppliers include information about the mix of generating resources each company or supplier uses (e. g. , the proportion of its power that comes from fossil fuel plants that are subject to federal New Source Performance Standards versus various types of renewable energy). (PA 13-298 reinstates this requirement. ) By law, PURA must maintain this database and make it available to customers on request.

The act also makes minor and technical changes in the energy and utility statutes, notably regarding PURA's jurisdiction relative to that of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). PURA is part of DEEP, but has a wide range of powers and responsibilities regarding utility regulation. The act also repeals several obsolete provisions.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Upon passage
