There are also bad bills that would impede renewable energy progress, including the following:
SB380/HB463 – Preempts local governments from doing anything about greenhouse gas emissions.
SB1024/HB741 – Destroys net metering which is an incentive for homeowners to go solar.
SB280/HB403 – All local ordinances would need a complicated business impact study before adoption giving businesses ammunition to sue local governments. This is a bill in search of a problem.
