Streamlining CETA and Energy Independence Act (EIA) requirements

At the Sept. 2 workshop Commerce hopes to identify opportunities to streamline the requirements of Washington’s two clean electricity laws, CETA and EIA, to simplify compliance and avoid duplicative processes. Please send us an email if you have specific ideas to cover at that workshop.
