Statement of Attorney General Martha Coakley on Governor Patrick's Signing of the Energy Bill

The following is a statement from Attorney General Martha Coakley regarding today’s signing of An Act Relative to Competitively Priced Electricity in the Commonwealth by Governor Deval Patrick:

“This law’s critical updates will allow the Commonwealth to maintain the benefits of the Green Communities Act while providing for increased competition, accountability, and transparency for ratepayers. Our office advocated for many reforms to benefit ratepayers including the reduction of sweetheart incentives for utilities and ensuring a competitive bidding process for renewable energy projects. We want to thank Governor Patrick as well as Senate President Murray, Speaker DeLeo, and Chairmen Downing and Keenan for their leadership on this issue.”
