On October 21, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order on Feed-In Tariff (FIT) pricing that clears the path for state-level Feed-In Tariffs. The order validates the FIT Coalition’s longstanding position on FIT pricing and clears one of the last remaining roadblocks to enacting true, comprehensive FIT programs in the US.Make no mistake, this FERC ruling is a huge win for clean energy:FERC has now provided a clear legal roadmap to apply worldwide best practices to state-level FIT design.
