Congress enacted the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) to promote conservation of energy, efficient use of facilities and resources and equitable rates to customers.

The Act tasked state regulatory authorities and non-regulated utilities with considering whether the adoption of the proposed standards would further the Act’s objectives. Over the years, PURPA has been amended to include additional standards related to electric utilities. The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007) amendments established new standards requiring consideration of such standards within certain defined timelines based on evidence collected from interested persons after public notice and hearing.

LCEC Consideration and Determination
In accordance with the prescribed public process, the LCEC Board of Trustees considered each of the EISA 2007 Standards in the context of the stated purpose of PURPA. The determination followed these considerations and evidence presented through public comments and during the course of the public hearing. This Public Determination is posted on LCEC’s website at and will be made available to any Eligible Participant upon request at cost.
