Feed-in Tariffs: Misfits in the Federal and State Regulatory Regime?


  • Morton, Teresa E.
  • Peabody, Jeffrey M.


While some states seeking to develop energy policies that promote fuel diversity and greater use of renewable resources have responded by enacting renewable portfolio standards, others, like California, have sought to capture some of the success demonstrated from the use of feed-in tariffs in countries such as Germany. Yet, as the California Public Utilities Commission's FIT Order makes clear, states are greatly limited in their ability to adopt feed-in tariffs.
