“Generally, PA 13-303 and PA 15-107 authorized the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) commissioner, in consultation with certain other officials, to solicit proposals from certain clean and renewable energy facilities. If the commissioner finds that the responding proposals meet certain criteria, he may direct the electric distribution companies (i.e., Eversource and United Illuminating) to enter into long term agreements to buy energy, generating capacity, and environmental attributes (i.e., renewable energy certificates (RECs)), or any combination of them, from the selected facilities. The parties must submit any resulting contracts to the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) for review and approval.”
