Title: Utility Green Tariff Programs in the U.S.: Overview and Opportunities for Cost Savings

Abstract

Federal agencies may want to procure renewable energy from an off-site generator. Green tariffs allow large utility customers in traditionally regulated states to procure renewable energy from their utility through a special tariff for energy from a specific renewable energy project, typically through a long-term contract. Some of these green tariffs provide customers with cost savings. The webinar will explain how these tariffs are structured, how to evaluate cost savings potential and what agencies need to consider when examining this purchasing option.
