Public Comments
 
There are several items before the Commission where public comments are being accepted: 
 

By this Notice of Inquiry (“NOI”), the Commission invites public comment on the analytical approach that it should take when considering the effects of a utility proposal on global climate change and the District’s public policy commitments, including whether specific greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions reporting requirements, metrics for GHG emissions reduction, and carbon footprint metrics should be used. The Commission solicits descriptions on what measurements and verification metrics could be designed to help it assess compliance with the CleanEnergy DC Act. The goal of seeking stakeholder input to further develop this framework is to provide a higher level of regulatory certainty and transparency into the decision-making process.  Comments are due January 13, 2020 for the Notice of Inquiry in GD-2019-04.
