FINAL SEIA RA Comments in Project No. 40268.pdf

On June 15, 2012, SEIA filed comments in PUCT Project No. 40268 addressing ERCOT's long-term resource adequacy issues. SEIA explained that solar is an ideal resource to meet Texas's growing electricity needs because it has a high effective peak capacity value, is quick to market, can be located in a geographically targeted manner, is highly modular and scalable, uses little to no water, and has minimal operating and maintenance costs and no fuel costs. SEIA also requested new pricing mechanisms for solar generation to better monetize solar's unique reliability services and the investor risk mitigation it provides.
