Solar plays a critical role in making the military’s energy supply more secure, distributed, affordable and independent. The DoD has committed to meet 25% of its energy needs with renewable energy by 2025.
This report provides a new cost-benefit analysis of the impacts of solar distributed generation (DG) on ratepayers in the service territory of Arizona Public Service (APS). The study shows that distributed solar generation (DG) and net energy metering will provide Arizona Public Service (APS) customers with $34 million in benefits each year.
A recent NREL report finds that concentrating solar power systems (CSP) with thermal energy storage (TES) provide value to the grid that is $30/MWh to $51/MWh higher than conventional base load generation. The analysis focused on grid performance in California under a 33% renewable scenario.
Pursuant to Rules 211 and 214 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC” or “Commission”) Rules of Practice and Procedure, the Solar Energy Industries Association respectfully submits this protest regarding PacifiCorp’s proposed revisions to its Open Access Transmission Tariff (“OATT”) Schedules 3 and 3A. PacifiCorp proposes to substantially increase its rates for Schedule 3: Regulation and Frequency Response Service, and also asks for differentiated cost recovery to serve variable energy resource (VER) and non-VER generators exporting power from PacifiCorp’s Balancing Authority Area (“BAA”) under Schedule 3A.

A recent NREL report finds that the use of public capital (asset-backed securities, investment pools and real estate investment trusts) can lower the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) by up to $0.16 for residential projects and $0.08 for utility projects. As consumer confidence in securitization grows, prices could fall by as much as 30%.

A recent Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory report finds that streamlined city permitting practices can reduce the cost of installed PV systems by $0.27-$0.77 per watt, relative to cities with less favorable permitting standards. Development times can be shorted by an average of 24 days, under favorable permitting standards.
