Description: 

Overview of 2011 study of renewable energy and energy efficiency portfolio standard (REPS), which concluded that offshore wind is one of North Carolina's most plentiful renewable resources, but also one of the most costly (39,000 MW technical potential; 14,000 MW practical potential; nearly $200/MWh levelized cost in 2011).

Recent Electricity Market Reforms in Massachusetts- A Report of Benefits and Costs

Source/Sponsor: 
Massachusetts Legislature
Creator/Author: 
Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EOEEA); Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development (EOHED)
Description: 

The report reviewed the costs and benefits associated with recent administrative, regulatory, and legislative changes related to electricity, including their impacts on rates and bills of electricity customers and their impact on economic development in the state. Renewable and alternative energy, including offshore wind, were found to provide ratepayer benefits outweighing the added cost of incentives for these resources resulting from wholesale market price reductions due to introduction of additional generation. At $328 million, the ratepayer benefits were projected to be three times the $111 million cost of implementing these renewable and alternative energy initiatives.

Public Service Commission (PSC) Staff Report on Term Sheets for Proposed Power Sales to Delmarva Power & Light (DPL)

Source/Sponsor:

Creator/Author: 
Delaware Public Service Commission (PSC)
Description: 

Staff recommend that the state agencies deny all of the long-term generational proposals under the term sheets: the proposal outlined in the Bluewater Wind term sheet deviates from its original bid proposal; both NRG's and Conectiv's proposals under the term sheets are structured as an element of the Bluewater Wind project. The Appendix includes the Independent Consultant's assessment of the term sheets, which concluded that the Bluewater Wind price adjustment formula imposed large risks on Delaware ratepayers and was not commercially reasonable.
