Biomass Renewable Energy Wildfire High Risk Areas

No is the pro-environment vote.
Status: Failed in House
Description: In the early days of renewable energy standards, “multipliers” allowed utilities to count a project as more energy than it actually created in order to comply with the standard and as an incentive to bring projects online quickly. Now, multipliers are no longer needed to drive investment, and have an adverse impact because they lead to less renewable energy. This bill would have created a new multiplier for biomass energy in an effort to incentivize a single project in southwest Colorado. Colorado has moved away from multipliers, and adding a new one would only degrade the standard.
