A comprehensive energy bill voted down in committee last week is back on its feet.
Last week, the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Energy voted 3-2 against H. 468, which would require utilities to purchase a percentage of their energy from “renewable” sources.
A week later, the committee came back with an amendment that would require a tiered approach to biomass facilities, meaning more efficient plants would get more credit than less efficient ones.
