Roadmap for Electric Transportation: Legislative Options

Comments Off on Roadmap for Electric Transportation: Legislative Options

Proactive state legislative action and planning are needed to realize the full benefits of electric transportation for citizens, the economy and the environment. Some states may be starting from scratch while others have existing legislation. The legislative options found here — part of the Roadmap for Electric Transportation kit — offer a menu of choices for most provisions, allowing legislators to choose what works best for the circumstances in their state. Annotations explain the pros and cons of each provision and analyze the various options offered.

The legislative kit was written by Camille Kadoch. Contributors include Frederick Weston, David Moskovitz and Mark LeBel.

State of Montana Proposed Rule Pertaining to Default Electricity Supply Procurement Guidelines

Comments Off on State of Montana Proposed Rule Pertaining to Default Electricity Supply Procurement Guidelines

The State of Montana’s proposed rules pertaining to resource planning and procurement provide a model for other jurisdictions. These guidelines provide policy guidance to default supply utilities (DSU) on long-term default electric supply resource planning and procurement. The guidelines do not impose on DSUs specific resource procurement processes nor mandate particular resource acquisitions. Instead, the guidelines describe a process framework for considering resource needs and suggest optimal ways of meeting those needs. Electric default supply resource decisions affect the public interest. A DSU can better serve the public interest if it involves the public in the portfolio planning process. The DSU must ultimately make electric resource acquisition decisions based on economics, reliability, management expertise and sound judgment, although management should consider these guidelines and public input.
