SB13-254 - Fleet Vehicle Energy Cost-savings Contracts

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning An Expansion Of The Utility Cost-Savings Measures Law To Allow A Governmental Entity To Enter Into A Vehicle Fleet Maintenance And Fuel Cost-Savings Contract.

Current law allows a state agency or political subdivision to enter into a contract for analysis and recommendations regarding energy conservation measures that would increase utility cost savings and operation and maintenance cost savings in buildings or other facilities owned or rented by the state agency or political subdivision. The bill expands current law to allow a state agency or political subdivision to enter into a contract for such analysis and recommendations regarding energy conservation measures that would significantly increase vehicle operational and fuel cost savings in state or political subdivision fleet vehicles.

Current law also allows a state agency or political subdivision to enter into a utility cost-savings contract with any person or entity experienced in the design and implementation of utility cost-savings measures for buildings or other facilities if the energy analysis and recommendations indicate that annual payments for utility cost-savings measures are expected to be equal to or less than the sum of utility and operation and maintenance cost savings achieved by implementation of such measures. The bill expands current law to allow a state agency or political subdivision to enter into a vehicle fleet operational and fuel cost-savings contract if the energy analysis and recommendations indicate that the annual payments for vehicle fleet operational and fuel cost-savings measures are expected to be equal to or less than the sum of the vehicle fleet cost savings achieved by the implementation of such measures.

In addition, the bill clarifies that special districts are authorized to enter into such cost-savings contracts.
