Title: Renewable Energy Portfolio Exemptions

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that allows exemptions to the state's policy requiring energy providers to obtain a certain percentage of their power from renewable sources by specific deadlines.

Highlights:

- Allows the Michigan Public Service Committee to grant two one-year extensions if good cause is given for why the provider is unable to meet the original deadline [Sec. 15 (1)]. - Exemptions providers from compliance with energy portfolio standards if the estimated rate impact of compliance exceeds $3.00 per month per residential customer meter, $16.58 per month per commercial secondary customer meter, or $187.50 per month per commercial primary or industrial customer meter [Sec. 25 (1)]. - House Bill 5549 is tie-barred to HB 5383, HB 5524, HB 5525, HB 5548, and HB 5972-5977. Unless all are enacted, the bill will not take effect. - Substitute offered by Representative Palsrok.

NOTE: THIS IS A SUBSTITUTE BILL, MEANING THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORIGINAL BILL HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBSTITUTE BILL TEXT DIFFERS FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE TEXT CAN VARY GREATLY.

NOTE: THIS VOTE RECONSIDERS A PREVIOUS VOTE.
