Value of Solar
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has published a report on the Value of Solar: Program Design and Implementation Considerations. The report is designed for regulators, utilities, and stakeholders who are interested in issues related to value of solar (VOS) program design and implementation. It discusses and addresses program design options and considers how a VOS rate may impact future development of distributed PV projects. “The study assesses the current cost competitiveness of residential solar projects in each U.S. state, under several hypothetical VOS tariff and incentive levels.” The six authors are staff members of NREL and the Solar Electric Power Association.
