AN ACT ESTABLISHING A SHARED CLEAN ENERGY FACILITY PILOT PROGRAM.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill requires the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to consult with electric distribution companies to establish a three-year pilot program of two shared clean energy facilities. There is no fiscal impact to DEEP, as it has the staff and expertise to develop and issue request for proposals from subscriber organizations seeking to develop a shared clean energy facility.

The two projects, totaling 6 megawatts of new generation, represent less than 0.2% of total electricity generation in Connecticut. It is estimated the pilot program would have no fiscal impact on the state or municipalities as ratepayers.
