Clean Coalition releases Module 2: Establishing CLEAN Contracts Prices of the Local CLEAN Program Guide
- Hello Clean Energy Advocates,
The Clean Coalition announces today the release of Module 2: Establishing CLEAN Contracts Prices of the Local CLEAN Program Guide. The Guide is a comprehensive how-to guide for communities and utilities across the nation to evaluate, design, and enact Clean Local Energy Accessible Now (CLEAN) Programs based on global best practices for ramping cost-effective renewables and reaping the associated economic benefits. The Guide draws from tremendously successful CLEAN Programs in the United States, such as the Gainesville, FL program and the soon-to-be operational CLEAN Programs that the Clean Coalition helped design in Fort Collins, CO and Palo Alto, CA.
Module 2 of the Guide provides a roadmap for establishing fixed prices for CLEAN Contracts. Since pricing effects both the types and amounts of renewable energy that will be deployed, as well as the timeframes of those deployments, the pricing is a critical step in designing CLEAN Programs. Module 2 removes the mystery of establishing fixed prices by illuminating the both potential approaches: value-based pricing based on avoided costs and cost-based pricing based on deployment costs.
Please visit http://www.clean-coalition.org/local-action/ to freely download the Local CLEAN Program Guide. If you would like to become a local advocate for deploying a CLEAN Program in your community, please email LocalGuide@.... The remaining five modules of the Guide will be released throughout the fall.
