Nesbitt Energy Plan Ends Competition, Keeps RPS

Rep. Aric Nesbitt said the eight-bill package introduced on Thursday to change the state's energy laws is just a starting point on debate that will continue throughout the year, and in it he eliminates the 10 percent set-aside for competition, re-regulates the market, and requires utilities to submit an integrated resource plan every five years rather than focusing on individual mandates.

The proposal was as notable for what Mr. Nesbitt (R-Lawton), chair of the House Energy Policy Committee, did not include as what he did include.
