Texas Legislature Repeals Problematic RPS Language

The Texas legislature has repealed a provision included in a 2005 law expanding the state's renewable portfolio standard (RPS), known as "Subsection (m)," that would have required all renewable energy generated in the state, even that associated with voluntary purchases, to count toward compliance with the state mandate. The problematic language had prompted the Green-e renewable energy certification program to issue an advisory that all renewable energy certificates (RECs) originating in Texas would be considered as retired for compliance purposes and thus not eligible for Green-e certification. The new legislation removes the language and affirms the prohibition against double counting RECs sold in voluntary purchase markets.
