Legislature Kills Renewable Energy Bill

Briefly Noted

2002-02-18 [SolarAccess.com] A bill in the Oklahoma Legislature that would have required utilities to buy electricity from renewable energy sources was killed in committee Tuesday. Advocates of the bill who said they were expecting approval blamed last-minute lobbying by electric utilities for the defeat of the measure. The utilities objected to the bill’s “renewable portfolio standard,” which would have required them to buy a small part of their power from renewable sources.
