CT denies eight companies’ $1B secret request

Aug 14th, 2013 | By | Category: Business

Connecticut regulators have denied the requests from eight companies to keep secret their information in a 21-year, $1 billion state renewable energy credit program, but pushed back the release of that information until next week.

The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority in July reversed its position on the Zero-emissions/Low-emissions Renewable Energy Credit program, or ZREC/LREC, saying information about the bids from participating companies should be release to the public, including the name of the company, the location of their planned renewable energy project, and how much they were asked for in ZRECs or LRECs. PURA’s reversal came after Hartford Business Journal filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the information that regulators previously ruled was secret.
