IndianaDG is a big supporter of Feed-in Tariffs (FITs). During the last IPL FIT case in Cause No. 44018, the issue of offering part of the program capacity under a reverse auction mechanism (RAM) was suggested in response to questions from IURC Chairman Jim Atterholt during rebuttal testimony by IPL witness John Haselden. At that time, IndianaDG began to explore the issue of FITs vs. RAMs.
Since the the use of RAMs has arisen again in discussions with Indiana electric utilities, we are posting some of the reports we reviewed at that time on this issue as follows:
Also this paper by John Farrell addresses the issue of CLEAN contracts or FITs vs. Solar Renewable Energy Credits or SREC's.
