In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen

 

AN ACT relative to renewable portfolio standards after 2025.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Minimum Electric Renewable Portfolio Standards.  RSA 362-F:3 is repealed and reenacted to read as follows:

362-F:3  Minimum Electric Renewable Portfolio Standards.

I.  For each year specified below, each provider of electricity shall obtain and retire certificates sufficient in number and class type to meet or exceed the percentages designated of total megawatt-hours of electricity supplied by the provider to its end-use customers that year, except to the extent that the provider makes payments to the renewable energy fund under RSA 362-F:10, II:

(a)  For Class I:  8.7 percent in 2018; and an additional .9 percent each year until 2040.  Within the total for Class I, the Class I useful thermal requirement shall be 1.2 percent in 2018 plus an additional .2 percent for each year until 2040.  Therefore, for 2040, and years thereafter, the total for Class I shall be 31.5 percent with 5.2 percent Class I useful thermal within the total.

(b)  For Class II:  .5 percent in 2018; .6 percent in 2019; .7 percent in the years 2020 through 2024; and 5.4 percent in 2025, with an additional .9 percent for each year until 2040.  Therefore the Class II requirement for 2040, and years thereafter, shall be 18.9 percent.

(c)  For Class III:  8 percent each year.

(d)  For Class IV:  1.5 percent each year.

II.  Class I and II requirements are subject to the provisions of RSA 362-F:4, V.

III.  Class III and IV requirements are subject to the provisions of RSA 362-F:4, VI.

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
