This bill would improve the stakeholder process for energy efficiency programes. ; The emergency clause was removed. ; Those stakeholders who have been involved have appreciated the process and this would strengthen and clarify the process. ; Meetings have been once annually, this would allow for at least two times per year. ; ;
