The State of Connecticut has two proposed bills that could potentially affect Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS). On January 22, 2013, Rep. Lawrence Miller (R) introduced House Bill (HB) 5475, which aims to provide additional time for compliance with the RPS requirements by extending each deadline beginning in 2016. On January 25, 2013, Rep. John E Piscopo (R) introduced HB 6086 with the purpose of amending general statutes to “include all types of hydropower as a Class I renewable energy source”. All hydropower currently defined as Class II renewable energy sources would be included in the Class I renewable energy source classification, according to the bill’s statement of purpose.
