Title: A status report on the design and implementation of state renewable portfolio standards and system benefits charge policies

Abstract

At last year's Windpower conference, we reported on state policies to foster renewable energy as part of efforts to restructure state electric power markets. The primary policies states are pursuing for renewables are system benefits charges (SBC) and renewable portfolio standards (RPS). Renewable portfolio standard policies began taking effect this year, while other states are continuing to work on the design of their RPS implementation strategies. In addition, states have begun distributing proceeds from their SBC funds. As a result, some renewable energy projects are beginning to materialize. This paper provides an update on state efforts with these two policies and examines some of the implementation issues and difficulties that states have faced thus far.
