The article reports that a renewable energy measure, House Bill 1117, died in the final days of the legislative session in the United States. The bill would have required utilities to obtain at least 6% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020. According to Grant Smith, executive director of Citizens Action Coalition, one unacceptable provision of the bill would have permitted utilities to recover more from ratepayers for capital costs involving their transmission systems.
