An initiative is underway in Lincoln, Nebraska, that would make it the first city in the Midwest with a feed-in tariff, or CLEAN program.
Indianapolis is seeing a boom in solar development, but the expiration of a utility feed-in tariff means the expansion could be short-lived.
CLEAN Programs – also known as feed-in tariffs with streamlined interconnection – are a proven energy policy responsible for the vast majority of renewable energy that has been deployed globally.
When a business or homeowner lowers their electricity bill by installing solar panels or wind turbines, do they drive up other customers’ utility bills?
Renewable energy proponents in the Midwest often point to Germany as a place where solar power can thrive under less-than-ideal conditions. But not all is sunny for the solar industry in Europe.
