Compromise Energy Bill to Mass Gov

MassachusettsThe Massachusetts Legislature has sent Governor Charlie Baker an energy bill that, according to MassLive, would lead to “significantly more” use of offshore wind and other types of renewable resources in the Bay State.

The story portrays H.4568 as a compromise. It would lead to long-term contracts to buy 1,600 MW of wind power, with is the midpoint between the 1,200 MW proposed by the Massachusetts House and the 2,000 MW backed by the Senate. The bill also mandates 1,200 MW of hydropower or other type of renewable. The bill requires repair of gas leaks but does not bar utilities from charging customers for the construction of natural gas pipelines, the story says.

In April, the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy agreed to increase by 3 percent the amount of excess solar energy that public and private customers can sell back to the grid.
