ABSTRACT
The article reports on the energy efficiency bill sponsored by U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman, Chairman of the Senate Energy Committee regarding decoupling in natural gas utilities. The bill, which is co-sponsored by Senator Pete Domenici, contains language that urges state regulators to allow natural gas facilities to decouple fixed cost revenue recovery from sales service provided to customers to promote energy efficiency. Moreover, President of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners James Kerr testified before the committee that decoupling is within the state jurisdiction and that the promotion of energy efficiency largely depends on local issues, preferences, and conditions.
