OFFICIAL BALLOT TITLE AS CERTIFIED BY

SECRETARY OF STATE

   Shall Missouri law be amended to:

    *   increase incrementally the total amount of renewable energy produced from sources such as wind turbines, solar, and hydropower that investor-owned electric utilities are required to purchase, generate, or otherwise acquire to at least 25% of their total retail sales by 2026, and limit rate increases to retail customers for compliance with this standard;

    *   require that such renewable energy be either procured by an electric utility for Missouri retail customers or generated by such customers; and

    *   provide for solar energy incentives for retail customers and additional duties for the Office of Public Counsel?….
