The Pennsylvania House Democratic Policy Committee will conduct a hearing Jan. 29 in Bryn Mawr about two pieces of legislation that would promote the development of renewable power.
The committee will hear testimony about H.B 100, which would increase the amount of power that utilities must obtain from renewable sources to 15 percent by 2023, up from the current requirement of 8 percent by 2021.
The panel will also hear testimony about H.B. 200, which would provide $25 million per year to the PA Sunshine Solar program, which provides rebates to homeowners and small businesses that install solar systems. The program is currently out of money.
