Senate Roll Call 506 on
2007 Senate Bill 213: Impose 10 percent renewable energy mandate on utilities

To mandate that electric utilities acquire at least 7 percent of their power from “renewable” and "clean" sources (including "carbon capture" coal plants) by 2015, and allow the costs to be passed on to customers. The bill would authorize income and business tax credits ($2 per month for indiduals, $11 for small business, $125 for large firms) to compensate for these more costly energy sources. It would also authorize trading of renewable energy “credits” between utilities that exceed or fall short of the mandated quantity; and establish expedited approval approval processes for wind-generated electric power; establish procedures for ending the cross-subsidation of residential gas customers by commercial ones; and more. See also House Bill 5524, which mostly repeals the 2000 law authorizing competition between electricity producers.
