On Tuesday, the House Energy & Utilities Subcommittee workshopped a series of energy policies for a potential committee bill. Included in those policies is the promotion of renewable energy, by authorizing public utilities to recover the costs to produce or purchase renewable energy used to supply electrical energy to retail customers. In the Senate, the Communications, Energy, and Public Utilities Committee is scheduled to discuss a proposed committee bill on renewable energy on Monday morning at 10:15 a.m. The proposed bill is not yet available, but should be published Friday afternoon within the committee meeting packet.
