Proposal

  • HB 1926 requires all municipally-owned utilities, if building transmission outside of their traditional service territory, to seek a certificate of convenience & necessity (CCN) through the PUC and follow the same routing process as any other electric utility.
  • The bill also continues the Texas Municipal Power Agency (TMPA), a collective of municipally-owned utilities that includes Bryan, Denton, Garland and Greenville.

 

Discussion

  • AECT supports HB 1926, as the bill ensures a level playing field for all utilities building transmission in Texas.
