Integrated Resource Planning passed; still waiting on PSC to implement rules

The West Virginia Legislature passed a bill to require electric utilities to do integrated resource planning.  Under H.B. 2803WV electric companies will have to submit electric generation plans to the WV Public Service Commission that include consideration of energy efficiency.  The bill represents an agreement reached between WV electric utilities and our campaign.  Integrated Resource Planning / Least Cost Planning has been a campaign of Energy Efficient West Virginia for the past three years and this is a win for advancing energy efficiency in the mountain state.
