MISSOURI – On Wednesday, January 6, 2010, the Missouri Public Service Commission voted to send proposed Renewable Energy Standard rules to the Secretary of State for publication in the Missouri Register. It is anticipated that the publication date would be February 16, 2010. To view documents in this proceeding, view Case Number (EX-2010-0169), Item 1 is the notice for opening the case, Items 2 & 3 are the proposed rules, and Item 4 is the notice for the Public Hearing.
In November 2008 voters in Missouri enacted Proposition C, a ballot initiative that repealed the state’s existing voluntary renewable energy and energy efficiency objective and replaced it with an expanded, mandatory renewable electricity standard of 15% by 2021. The standard sets the following minimum benchmarks for electric utilities based on their annual electricity sales:
- 2% from 2011 to 2013 (0.04% solar)
- 5% from 2014 to 2017 (0.1% solar)
- 10% from 2018 to 2020 (0.2% solar)
- 15% for 2021 and thereafter (0.3% solar)
A Public Hearing on this proposal is scheduled for April 6, 2010.
