    • Hover on blue ? icons for tips; review red * searchable fields for accuracy
    • If policy does not affect or influence clean energy development, select No from “Relevant for EZ Mapping Tool” pull-down menu
    • Enter “substantial” or estimated MW of installed/expected capacity related to policy if likely to be in state’s top tier of significance for EZ study
    • Update or add any web links, contacts, shape files, authorities as needed
    • Ensure summary is accurate and understandable; save page before closing

Keeping up to date on changes

  • Edits can be seen here and subscribed to by email, RSS feeder, etc
  • This feature shows pages whose approved revision is not their latest. The pages with "Data:" are part of the utility rate database, so anything that does not have Data: should be easy to spot and may be in your section of needing approvals.


Creating new EZ entries

Editing help

The Formatting and Links pages are helpful in translating from html to wiki syntax. The only caveat is when creating tables, you can continue to use html syntax.
