Developing "MOU/CO-OP ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAMS REPORTING FORM" to Satisfy Senate Bill 924 (82nd R) Reporting Requirements
MetadataShow full item record
As mandated by the 82nd R Legislature (2011), Senate Bill 924, Utilities Code, Sections 39.9051 and 39.9052, beginning April 1, 2012, all electric cooperatives that had retail sales of more than 500,000 megawatt hours in 2005 and all municipally owned utilities must report each year to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) on a standardized form developed by SECO, information regarding the combined effects of their energy efficiency activities for the previous calendar year. This report must contain annual goals, programs enacted to achieve those goals, and any achieved energy demand or energy savings goals. SECO is required to forward these reports to the Energy Systems Laboratory (Laboratory). The Laboratory is mandated to calculate the energy savings and estimated pollution reductions that resulted from the reported activities and share the results of the analysis with the Public Utility Commission of Texas, ERCOT, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. During the first quarter of 2012, the Laboratory devised and proposed to SECO the standardized form for use by the MOUs and the Co-ops in order to satisfy the new reporting requirements set by Senate Bill 924. This form contains the minimum information needed to show the maximum estimated pollution reduction for reporting purposes for the State of Texas. The form that was proposed to SECO by the ESL appears on the next page.
