Appeal of certification decision

  • fee


A person that believes a decision of the Director of the State Department of Energy to certify a sustainable energy project manager is inconsistent with applicable rules or statutes may file a request to appeal with the Small Scale Local Energy Project Advisory Committee. Unless the request for appeal is filed by a nonprofit entity, the request must be accompanied by a $2,000 appeal fee. The fee shall be waived for a nonprofit entity. The committee may initiate a review on its own motion.


A majority of the committee may authorize the presiding officer of the committee to appeal the certification decision to the Governor. The presiding officer may initiate an appeal to the Governor no later than 30 days after receiving a request for appeal or 15 days after the committee initiates a review on its own motion.


The decision of the Governor is final. If the Governor does not act within 30 days after receiving the appeal from the presiding officer of the committee, the appeal is denied. [2009 c.753 §10]
