Observations on State and Federal Interaction with Respect to Renewable Portfolio Standards
Clean Energy States Alliance
Over the last three years, a regional collaborative of state RPS program managers from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region has been exploring how to support successful design and implementation of state RPS programs. The Collaborative has prepared the following observations regarding the appropriate interaction between any federal RPS that might be adopted by Congress and state RPS programs. These observations are based on consultations and discussions with state RPS program policy makers and administrators in the region. However, the observations do not represent the position of any particular participant in the national Collaborative. Further, these comments are not intended to either support or oppose the adoption of a federal RPS.
