The National Energy Efficiency Registry Project Team, including Pennsylvania, Monday released its draft Principles and Operating Rules for a National Energy Efficiency Registry Registry. The deadline for comments is May 31.
Pennsylvania joined with five other states and the National Association of State Energy Officials to develop the Registry. The Registry would--
-- Provide a consistent, robust framework for energy efficiency to be included as “eligible resources” in federal and state plans;
-- Demonstrate the eligibility and verification of energy efficiency projects, particularly voluntary private sector efficiency actions, according to eligibility standards proposed by individual states, a group of states, or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; and,
-- Facilitate the opportunity for inter- and intrastate trading.
To help inform public comments on the proposals, the NEER Team will hold webinars on April 17 and May 11.Click Here for copies of the proposal, instructions on how to submit comments, a list of key questions on which the NEER Team would like feedback.
