      McKibben Calls for National Feed-in Tariffs

      In an article titled �Getting Connected� in the May-June issue of ASES' in house magazine Solar Today, Bill McKibben called for a �national feed-in tariff policy like the ones pioneered in Germany.�

      McKibben, widely known for his book �End of Nature�, teaches at Middlebury College in Vermont. He was one of the first national figures to endorse a feed-in tariff in the United States in January 2008.

      McKibben says in the article that Americans �need to become energy providers--tiny-scale utilities� to move the country toward renewables.

      FlaSEIA Puts Feed Laws at Top of Agenda

      On June 2, 2008, the Florida Solar Energy Industries Association voted unanimously to put a campaign for Renewable Energy Payments (feed-in tariffs) at the top of its policy agenda. Previously, FlaSEIA had endorsed feed-in tariffs as one policy mechanism the state could use to meet its RPS targets.

      FlaSEIA has now clearly chosen renewable energy payments/feed-in tariffs as its preferred policy mechanism for developing solar in the state. It is the first solar energy trade association to do so in the USA.

      CanSIA endorsed Advanced Renewable Tariffs several years earlier.
