@PaLegis -- #PAHouse & #PASenate -- are in session today. Get up to speed on bills that impact #greenbuilding:

Senate Bill 805 would allow large commercial and industrial electric utility customers to opt out of participating in programs under Pennsylvania’s Act 129 energy efficiency and conservation legislation. Currently, Act 129 requires the state’s electricity distribution companies (EDCs) to invest in cost-effective energy efficiency measures across all sectors – residential, commercial, and industrial -- to meet certain electricity savings targets. All ratepayers in Pennsylvania, including these large commercial and industrial users, reap the savings benefits from increased energy efficiency and demand response. If SB 805 is passed, the bill would significantly undermine the advancements made under Act 129 in the Commonwealth to date.
