Title: Renewable portfolio standards in the states: balancing goals and rules

Abstract

Renewable portfolio standards establish a minimum percentage of electricity that retailers must provide from renewable energy sources. However, successful implementation must surmount the hurdle of RPS rules that vary from state to state along with their impacts on the ability to finance new renewable energy projects. A successful RPS policy must balance a state's goals for fuel diversity, economic development, price effects, and environmental benefits. (author)
