Renewable portfolio standards (RPS) have proven to be one of the most effective policy mechanisms for driving demand of solar and renewables. Currently, 29 states plus D.C. have RPS policies and 17 states plus D.C. have solar and distributed generation provisions. Because RPS policies are key to driving solar development, SEIA is focused on defending and expanding RPS policies around the country. Join Galen Barbose, Principle Scientific Engineering Associate of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Rick Umoff, Counsel and Regulatory Affairs Manager of SEIA’s State Affairs team, for an in-depth look at the current status of RPS policies.
