The project makes sPower the owner of the largest portfolio of PV under construction in PSEG-LI’s Clean Solar Initiative Feed-In-Tariff Program.
CSI-II will precede two additional clean energy projects to be released before year end 2013. In one, LIPA staff is developing another feed-in tariff to allow for wind, fuel cells and other renewable resources to fill an additional 20MW block of renewable energy. In the other, LIPA is preparing a Request for Proposals for up-to-280 MW of renewable energy.
And how about the United States? Clean energy advocates have suggested that President Obama create a national feed-in-tariff to develop renewable energy. This could be established following the model of the National Highway Trust. The president would set a national standard for feed-in-tariffs through the authority of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). . .
Michael Deering, Vice President of Environmental Affairs at the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), talks about that utility’s recently-introduced 50 MW feed-in tariff program. . .
To much media fanfare, Long Island Power Authority has begun accepting applications for a limited and short-term feed-in tariff program for commercial solar photovoltaics (solar PV). . .
Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) Board of Trustees voted today to approve LIPA’s new Clean Solar Initiative (CSI) that will provide Long Island with the next 50 megawatts (MW) of solar energy on Long Island. This initiative will further advance the development of solar energy and the growth of clean energy jobs on Long Island. . .
To encourage its customers to build solar projects of more than 50 kW, the Long Island Power Authority in New York is planning a feed-in tariff that would pay 22 cents per kilowatt-hour over 20 years. The power authority’s board of trustees is expected to approve the tariff when it meets on June 28. This would be the first such tariff in New York state for solar energy, LIPA said.
