Act 174 Energy Planning

Act 174, Energy Planning Technical Assistance and Education

Regional Planning Commissions, in partnership with the Department of Public Service, held eleven trainings over the course of two weeks. The training focused on the goals of Act 174, the implications for Section 248 proceedings and the specific requirements of the determination standards for local and regional plans. RPCs may also hold trainings for specific local or regional audiences, and each RPC will hold another region-wide training in spring 2017.

In 2017 RPCs will provide each municipality with a compilation of maps and data and will work directly with a minimum of three municipalities to complete energy plans necessary to meet the standards.
