Dems Call For 20% By 2022 Renewable Energy Standard

Facing a push from majority Republicans, utilities and others to abolish the state's requirement mandating utilities generate a certain percentage of their energy from renewable sources, top Democrats on the energy committees mounted a counterattack Tuesday, saying their top priority is to increase the existing renewable portfolio standard.

The Democratic proposal calls for raising the renewable standard from 10 percent by 2015 to 20 percent by 2022, said Rep. Bill LaVoy (D-Monroe), the minority vice chair on the House Energy Policy Committee, and Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood (D-Taylor), the minority vice chair on the Senate Energy and Technology Committee.
