As a member of the "VA Tea Party Federation Bill Reader Team", HB 70 is yet another in the growing list of bills calling for legislating

energy efficiency and demand response management programs , which we all know are "smart meters".  

Please consider in your decision, all the lawsuits that are erupting all over the US because of the proven health hazard that this technology presents, not to mention the potential for invasion of privacy and threat of rationed energy.

Offered January 11, 2012 
Prefiled December 19, 2011 
A BILL to amend and reenact � 67-202.1 of the Code of Virginia and to amend the Code of Virginia by adding in Chapter 23 of Title 56 a section numbered56-596.1, relating to energy efficiency standards; reports. 
Patron-- Englin 


1.  That � 67-202.1 of the Code of Virginia is amended and reenacted and that the Code of Virginia is amended by adding in Chapter 23 of Title 56 a section numbered 56-596.1 as follows:

� 56-596.1. Energy efficiency standard.

The Commonwealth shall have a stated goal of reducing the consumption of electric energy by retail customers 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. This goal is apportioned so that (i) five-nineteenths is attributable to energy performance improvements resulting from enhancements to the Uniform Statewide Building Code and appliance efficiency standards; (ii) one-nineteenth is attributable to improved energy performance of publicly owned buildings; (iii) two-nineteenths is attributable to energy performance improvements in the industrial sector; (iv) one-nineteenth is attributable to combined heat and power; and (v) ten-nineteenths is attributable to improved energy performance from a portfolio of cost-effective electric utility energy efficiency programs designed to reduce the consumption of electric energy by each utility's retail customers in the Commonwealth. Nothing in this section shall be construed to establish an upper limit on the amount of cost-effective energy efficiency programs that utilities may implement or the designated capacity of cost-effective energy efficiency programs for which the Commission may approve a rate adjustment clause under the provisions of subdivision A 5 c of � 56-585.1.

Each investor-owned public utility providing electric service in the Commonwealth shall prepare an annual report disclosing its efforts to conserve energy, including but not limited to (i) its implementation of customer demand-side energy efficiency and demand response management programs and;(ii) efforts by the utility to improve efficiency and conserve energy in its internal operations pursuant to � 56-235.1; and (iii) the amount of electric energy consumption reduced, expressed in megawatt hours, through the utility's energy efficiency programs. Such report shall address the utility's progress towards achieving the electric energy consumption reduction goal provided for in clause (v) of � 56-596.1. The utility shall submit each annual report to the Division of Energy of the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy by November 1 of each year, and the Division. The Department shall compile the reports of the utilities and information detailing progress in attaining the goals established in � 56-596.1 and submit the compilation to the Governor and the General Assembly as provided in the procedures of the Division of Legislative Automated Systems for the processing of legislative documents. The Department also shall post such reports on the agency's website.
