Explanation

The bill requires the shared clean energy pilot program to be financed with one or more tariff mechanisms approved by the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) for the state's electric distribution companies. The state and municipalities, as ratepayers, would incur increased costs dependent on the tariff mechanisms approved by PURA.

House “A” specifies how the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection will consider proposals for the program and requires the electric distribution companies to submit their tariff proposals to PURA which does not have a fiscal impact.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the tariff mechanisms approved by PURA.
