New Feed in Tariff Report From NREL

Posted by Margaret Collins In Wednesday, February 3 2010 under: FIT, Feed In Tariff, NREL

In the interests of information-sharing, we just wanted to alert you to the National Renewable Energy Lab's (NREL) newly released report on feed in tariffs. It will make your knees weak if you're a policy wonk or an energy lawyer--I mean heck, it's entitled "Renewable Energy Prices in State-Level Feed-in Tariffs: Federal Law Constraints and Possible Solutions"--but it includes an overview for the FiT neophyte, as well. Don't read the whole thing, unless you're really, really having trouble sleeping, but do check out some basic definitions and context for the FiT programs developing across the country.

Still, that's enough for 100 moderately-sized 5kw solar panel installations in a state that has previously been hanging around the edges of the solar movement without quite getting its feet wet. (A few state utilies do offer solar rebates; check out the full list of MI incentives here.)
