      Subject: CEC recommends a 20MW FIT for immediate implementation

      All,
       
      On Monday, the California Energy Commission (CEC) formally recommended that a Feed-In Tariff (FIT) for 20MW-and-under renewable energy projects be implemented in California.  See the attached two-slide .pdf for the official CEC overview.  Note that the recommended FIT will have pricing that is both technology-differentiated and cost-based; like the European FITs. 
       
      While GreenVolts has been leading the effort to date for an effective FIT in California, the coalition has been growing quickly and now includes CalSEIA, CEERT, Solar Alliance, Vote Solar, and many NGO and corporate entities.  
       
      The CEC recommendation is a huge win for FITs and I expect that a FIT will be implemented and online in California by 1 Jan 2010.  A national FIT is next and the time is now to make sure that SEIA and other national solar leaders are promoting FITs accordingly.  FITs have proven themselves to be, by far, the most effective policy mechanism in the world for getting renewables online; especially solar!!!

      Cheers,
