CPUC authorizes use of tradable renewable energy credits

Solar Home and Business Journal - Jan 13

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has approved the use of tradable renewable energy credits by investor-owned utility companies. Utilities buying or trading the credits can use them to help meet their requirements for generating a certain percentage of their electricity from renewable sources. CPUC will allow California utilities to use the credits to meet up to 25 percent of their annual procurement targets for the federal renewable energy incentives.
