Summary as introduced:

Energy conservation and efficiency goal.  Establishes a statewide goal of reducing the consumption of electric energy within the Commonwealth, through energy conservation and efficiency actions taken by government, electric utilities, and retail customers, by 2025 to a level that is 19 percent less than the quantity of electricity that would reasonably be projected to be consumed in the Commonwealth in 2025 in the absence of such actions. The measure specifies percentages of the reductions in consumption that are to be attained through elements including energy performance improvements resulting from enhancements to the Statewide Building Code and appliance efficiency standards, improved energy performance of publicly owned buildings, energy performance improvements in the industrial sector, and combined heat and power. Investor-owned utilities are required to address their energy efficiency and demand response management programs in their annual conservation reports. The measure also requires electric cooperatives to file assessments of impediments to their implementation of certain rate initiatives.
