Texas Passes Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Legislation

Texas Governor Rick Perry signed into law H.B. 2049, which will allow CHP facilities to sell power to multiple purchasers. The legislation overcomes a key barrier to CHP deployment in the state and will encourage the expansion of CHP technologies. The governor also signed H.B. 1864 into law, which instructs the State Energy Conservation Office to prepare guidelines for conducting CHP feasibility analyses.
