Fiscal Detail and Notes
The amendment replaces the bill and requires the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to study the potential benefits and barriers involved in making renewable thermal technologies eligible for qualification in Maine's Renewable Portfolio Standard and report to the First Regular Session of the 127th Legislature. The only remaining fiscal impact is a minor cost to the PUC to study and monitor certain out-of-state legislation and rules that can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
