HB 2830 Energy and Water Savings Accounts for Schools, Cities, & Towns

(download full brief)

The essentials

  • Governor Jan Brewer signed AZ State Rep. Amanda Reeve’s (R-6) bill HB2830 into law in April 2012.
  • Before bill HB 2830 was passed, the only state public institutions authorized to enter into performance contracts for energy efficiency projects were K-12 schools (see A.R.S. §15-910.02).
  • The HB 2830 additions expand performance contracting authority to public universities, towns, cities, and counties throughout AZ, and extend these institutions’ performance contracting authority to include renewable energy generation projects.
  • This policy provides risk management and financing solutions to government entities as they retrofit existing buildings for greater energy and water cost savings.
