PURPA amendment stalls in Arizona; report features tweeted comment from Rose Law Group Co-Founder and Director of Renewable Energy, Court Rich

An amendment to Arizona’s implementation of PURPA rules which would have set minimum contract lengths to 15 years failed to pass last night, and the act now has one last chance to pass before the investment tax credit drops down, and opportunities being to dry up.

Last night, a proposed amendment before Arizona regulators to set power contracts under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) at a minimum of 15 years failed to pass, stalling before the commission to a 2-2-1 vote, with one abstention.

The amendment is not dead, however.
