Title: Council criticizes FEA's proposed guidelines governing state energy conservation plans

Abstract

The Council on Wage and Price Stability submits its comments on regulations proposed by the Federal Energy Administration to continue implementation of a program for state energy conservation plans under Part C of Title III of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (''Act''; Public Law 94-163). The proposed regulations establish procedures and guidelines for the program and for the disbursement of financial and technical assistance to the States in support of their energy conservation plans. The program is voluntary on the part of the states. The act authorizes $50 million for financial assistance to the States each year for fiscal years 1976, 1977, and 1978. If a State wishes to be eligible for assistance its Governor must submit a detailed state energy conservation plan containing (1) a goal of at least a five percent reduction in energy consumption for the year 1980; (2) a description of the estimated costs of implementation and the estimated energy savings associated with each proposed program; and (3) minimum criteria in five areas of energy conservation. These criteria would require a state to (a) enact lighting efficiency standards for public buildings; (b) establish programs to promote the use of carpools, vanpools, and public transportation; (c)more » establish standards concerning the procurement practices of the State and its political subdivisions to improve energy efficiency; (d) establish thermal efficiencystandards for new and renovated buildings; and (e) enact a law or regulation permitting motorists to turn right (left in the Virgin Islands) at a red light after coming to a stop.
