Central Georgia EMC PURPA Proceedings
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (“IIJA”), adopted in November 2021, amends the Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (“PURPA”) by requiring the consideration of two (2) new standards for those electric utilities with annual retail sales of electric energy exceeding 500 million kWh in 2020 or 2021. Central Georgia EMC meets this energy threshold.
Below is an abbreviated version of the two (2) new PURPA standards enacted by the IIJA:
(1) to promote the use of demand-response and demand flexibility practices by consumers to reduce electricity consumption during periods of unusually high demand, and to establish rate mechanisms to recover the cost of promoting said practices, and
(2) to consider measures to promote greater electrification of the transportation sector, including establishing rates to promote and improve EV charging options and public EV charging infrastructure.
