PSC Ditches Energy Conservation Measures

November 25th, 2014 by Mike Vasilinda

By a 3-2 vote. The state Public Service Commission today adopted a staff recommendation, allowing utilities to reduce energy conservation programs. Environmental groups criticized the vote. In a statement, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy said “Instead of siding with customers, the PSC sided with monopoly utility shareholders, once again, by setting meager goals that promote the construction of new power plants – which earn the companies a hefty profit, while leaving fewer opportunities for customers to lower energy use and save money on bills.”

The PSC did agree to hold public hearings to discuss cost effective and feasible solar programs.
