Pending Climate Legislation Updates:
California State Legislation Passes Two New Energy Bills
Two bills authored by Senator Patricia Wiggins (D-Santa Rosa) were approved by the state senate on Wednesday, June 3, 2009. The bills are targeted at enhancing current CA energy legislation for both solar energy and energy efficiency
Senate Bill 7 would change existing net metering laws to allow utility customers who produce solar power to roll over excess energy production credits for up to two years.
Senate Bill 542 is designed to encourage further adoption of energy efficiency and solar energy in apartments, commercial buildings, and manufactured homes.
Both bills have passed the CA Senate and are moving on the the House of Representatives.
Waxman Markley Climate Bill Paves Way to Cap & Trade
HR 2454: The American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACESA or the Waxman Markley Climate Energy Bill) has passed out of both the Energy and Commerce committees in the House and are moving on the Senate. ACESA establishes an economy wide cap on greenhouse gas emissions and puts the United States on a path to reduce emissions by 83% below 2005 levels by 2050. Some highlight of the bill include:
* A combined energy efficiency and renewable energy electricity standard requiring 20% of 2020 electric sales to come from efficiency and renewables, with efficiency 5-8% and renewables 12-15%. ACEEE estimates that this will result in about 3% efficiency savings in 2020, beyond business-as-usual.
* Building energy efficiency programs including improved building codes, retrofit programs, energy-efficient manufactured housing, and building labeling.
* New appliance efficiency standards on six products plus reforms to the process for setting new standards.
* Clean transportation-a significant transportation planning section, electric vehicle infrastructure provisions, and a weak "cash for clunkers" program to encourage replacement of gas-guzzlers now on the road.
* A new provision that creates building centers, which build on the Industrial Assessment Center and establishes regional coordinating centers.

PVT System Capable of Producing Electric Power and Heat
A "PVT" system is a combined PhotoVoltaic and Solar Thermal energy production system. The benefits are many:
* Offsets both electric and thermal (hot water) energy loads
* Decreased temperature means increased PV efficiency
* Provides a comprehensive energy solution for properties
* Combined installation means lower up front costs
SEP is proud to be able to offer PVT solutions to their clients through a combination of the Sollega racking system and Sundrum Solar Thermal collectors.
