We have some news updating of Feed-In-Tariff from our friend of the Wind persuasion, Paul Gipe, below:
September 3, 2013, by John Farrell, ILSRWhile the utility’s options were being debated, Ed had an opportunity to travel to Germany with the Solar Electric Power Association and learn about their feed-in tariff program. To his surprise, when he presented his findings to the local energy commission, their reply was, “why can’t we do that here?”
Below, is an interview with Ed Regan and Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan of Gainesville, FL, on FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) on July 12, 2013, previously seen in an earlier July 26, 2013 post:
September 3, 2013,China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) has announced three regional pricing variations for the nation’s feed-in tariff for solar photovoltaic (PV) generation, which it says are based on available solar resources and construction costs.
September 3, 2013, by Paul GipeUpdated tables on Feed-in Tariffs including China’s 2013 Solar PV Tariffs Differentiated by Resource Intensity; Ontario Small FIT 2013, Kerala (India) Wind and Hydro FITs, and Proposed Tidal Feed-in Tariffs for Nova Scotia
September 2, 2013, by Craig MorrisJosep Puig: In the past five or six years, Spanish power firms have built some 26,000 MW of combined-cycle power plants. These firms apparently did not see all of this renewable capacity coming, and I believe the average number of operating hours for these plants was around 2,000 last year, which puts their capacity factor at below 25%.
August 30, 2013, by Jodi PerrasDuke Energy also agreed to pursue either a new feed-in tariff program to purchase at least 30 megawatts of solar power from its Hoosier customers or to purchase or install at least 15 megawatts of wind or solar generating capacity from new facilities built in Indiana.
August 29, 2013, by Duane ShimogawaHawaii regulators are re-examining a program that’s designed to encourage the addition of more renewable energy projects in Hawaii called the feed-in-tariff, or FIT, program.
August 26, 2013, by Mary Stonaker, Chad Laurent, and Neil Veilleux, Meister Consultants GroupA huge opportunity exists for landowners, especially farm owners, to band together and not only offset their own energy usage (to generate savings) but also to earn additional revenue in the long-run from the adoption of solar PV. There is enormous potential for farmers to harvest solar and other renewables to generate local, clean, renewable energy.
August 21, 2013,Under this Program, applicants will be eligible to receive at least one FIT rate for single base or single moored in-stream tidal energy device projects and another FIT rate for projects consisting of multiple bases or moorings.
August 20, 2013,3,300 MW of renewable energy has been installed since the FIT program was launched and another 22,000 MW of FIT projects are under contract in the Japanese program.[more]
