  393.1025.  Electrical corporations, dutiesregarding technology — commissionto adopt rules. — 1. Each electrical corporation shall make a good faith effort to generate or procure sufficient electricity generated by an eligible renewable energy technology, and support energy efficiency measures, so that by 2012, four percent of total retail electric sales in the aggregate by electrical corporations is generated by eligible renewable energy technologies, increasing to eight percent by 2015, and eleven percent generated by eligible renewable energy technologies by 2020. Generation provided by any existing eligible renewable energy technology, owned, controlled, or purchased by electrical corporations, that are operational prior to August 28, 2007, shall be applied towards meeting the objective so long as it continues to generate electricity. Credit towards the objective also may be achieved through energy efficiency that includes electrical corporation and consumer efforts to reduce the consumption of electric energy. After consulting with the department, the commission may establish intermediate goals for the use of renewable energy technologies as part of its rulemaking process.

  2. By July 1, 2008, the commission shall, after consultation with the department, adopt rules that integrate into its resource planning rules the renewable energy objective of subsection 1 of this section and the criteria and standards by which it will measure an electrical corporation's efforts to meet that objective to determine whether it is making the required good faith effort. In this rulemaking, the commission shall include criteria and standards that, at a minimum, shall:

  (1) Protect against adverse economic impacts, including the costs of any transmission investments necessary to access eligible renewable energy technologies, on the ratepayers and shareholders;

  (2) Protect against undesirable impacts on the reliability of each electrical corporation's system;

  (3) Consider environmental compliance costs, present and future, of each source being evaluated; and

  (4) Consider technical feasibility, providing for flexibility in meeting the objective in the event electrical corporations are, for good cause shown, unable to meet in aggregate the objective of this section.

  3. In its rulemaking under this section, the commission shall provide for a weighted scale of how energy produced by various eligible renewable energy technologies shall count toward an electrical corporation's objective. In establishing this scale, the commission shall consider the attributes of various technologies and fuels and shall establish a system that grants multiple credits toward the objective for those technologies and fuels the commission determines are in the public interest to encourage. The commission may also grant multiple credits toward the objective for generation in the state or procurement of electricity generated in the state that uses an eligible renewable energy technology.

  4. The commission shall develop rules as provided in this section in consultation with the department as necessary to implement the requirements of this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, RSMo, that is created under the authority delegated in this section and section 393.1020 shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536, RSMo, and, if applicable, section 536.028, RSMo. This section and chapter 536, RSMo, are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536, RSMo, to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2007, shall be invalid and void.
