On Thursday, January 14th, the Combined Heat and Power Alliance, along with 24 other businesses, trade associations, and nonprofit organizations with either a direct presence or interest in Pennsylvania, sent in a set of comments to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Environmental Quality Board recommending changes to the cogeneration set-aside provisions within the proposed rule-making language and to urge the DEP to consider prioritizing the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) auction proceeds towards CHP investment and deployment in the Commonwealth.
The joint comments include an appendix detailing our recommended changes to the language in the proposed rule-making. The current draft RGGI rule-making can be found here.
These comments follow previous efforts from earlier this summer to promote investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy with RGGI proceeds, under which CHP applies.
