  December December 8 NTREG Monthly Meeting.
Topic:"What the 2013 Legislative Session Means for Power and Renewable Energy in Texas"
Presenter: Texas State Representative Rafael Anchia, House District 103, covering Northwest Dallas County in the Texas Legislature.
In response to the growing concern over the need to meet increasing energy demand while balancing the state's air quality and public health concerns, Representative Anchia has become a leader in the Texas House of Representatives on energy issues. He has authored numerous legislative proposals that would save businesses, government, and residential consumers money while protecting the environment by promoting energy efficiency, renewable energy and alternative technologies such as plug-in hybrids and combined heat and power plants.
Earlier this year, the Texas Public Utility Commission, the state agency that regulates energy, voted to sharply increase the maximum dollar amount electricity generators can charge retail providers for power when supplies run short.
The change raises the price cap from $3,000 per megawatt hour to $4,500, increasing costs for retail providers when the grid gets overloaded. Those costs will be passed on to consumers. How much? $4.5 Billion dollars!
State Representative Rafael Anchia is one of the few legislators who filed questions with state regulators about the rule change. He wanted to see evidence that the PUC was looking at ALL options to make sure Texas has adequate electricity, and that consumers aren't getting getting ripped off.
In 2011, Representative Anchia was the House sponsor of a number of bills related to energy efficiency, distributed renewable generation and energy storage that became law.
Representative Anchia received the Gregg Cooke Award for Excellence in Environmental Leadership at the annual Clean Air Through Energy Efficiency (CATEE) Conference in November, 2011.
