An updated version of the Local CLEAN Program Guide (“the Guide”) is available for free download onthe Clean Coalition website. The improved Guide includes new information and tools for assisting utilities and communities that want to evaluate, design, and implement CLEAN Programs.

Since the original Guide was published in June 2011, a growing number of utilities across the country have implemented CLEAN Programs. The updated Guide contains the latest best practices from recent CLEAN Programs, including the use of Volumetric Price Adjustments to maintain the appropriate fixed price for new renewable energy contracts over the duration of a CLEAN Program.

Additionally, the Guide now features new examples to highlight the most effective methodologies for conducting essential program analyses, such as determining the ideal program size and measuring ratepayer impact. This improved step-by-step guidance makes CLEAN Program evaluation, design, and implementation easier than ever before.
