Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. To date, the federal government's involvement in renewable energy programs has been limited to voluntary programs and providing financial incentives for renewable energy generation. However, Connecticut state legislation has established a renewable energy portfolio standard and requirements for the development of a state energy strategy.
• Administration and enforcement. The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's (DEEP) Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) administers the state's renewable energy portfolio standard. The agency is also responsible for preparing and updating the state's Comprehensive Energy Strategy.
