Establishment of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Planning for Connecticut's Energy Future (SB 1243)
This bill creates the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) by merging the departments of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Public Utility Control (DPUC). In addition to the duties and powers inherited from those departments, the bill gives DEEP new energy-related planning and oversight responsibilities and transfers various energy-related responsibilities and powers from the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) to it.
It makes minor changes to energy related statutes and numerous conforming and technical changes (§§ 2, 9-13, 18, 19, 21, 24-26, 28, 29, 31, 34-36, 38-40, 54, 57-79, 81-87, 119, 134, 135, and 140), and repeals obsolete provisions of the energy statutes.
