Notice of PURPA 111(d) Standards Consideration & Hearing Process
The Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA) was enacted in 1978 to encourage conservation, efficiency in the use of electric utility facilities and resources, and equitable rates for electric consumers. PURPA identifies a number of standards that certain electric utilities must consider and determine if it is appropriate to implement such standards. These standards are enumerated in PURPA Section 111(d).
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 created two new Federal standards related to promotion of demand-response and electric vehicle adoption. The two standards are shown below for convenience and the entire statute is codified at 16 U.S.C. Ch. 46, Section 2621(d).
CORE’s Board of Directors has established procedures and schedules in connection with its consideration of these new PURPA standards, which are posted on this webpage and at its offices.
Current members are invited to submit comments and any related materials on the standards being considered. Any comments must include the submitting party’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address, and be delivered to email@example.com or

no later than Feb. 28, 2023. All comments will be posted to CORE’s website and included in the consideration process. Any replies received by March 31, 2023, also will be posted to CORE’s website and included in the consideration process.
A public hearing will be convened at 1 p.m. May 18, 2023, at CORE’s Sedalia headquarters to give interested parties an opportunity to provide oral comment on the standards or any previously submitted written comment.
