CFA Part 2

Three items from the CLEAN Furture Act.. All verbatim
NWA has to be considered ..." distributed generation, energy storage, energy efficiency, demand response, microgrids, or grid software and controls"
Note what is and is not included.
CONTRACT OPTIONS FOR QUALIFIED FACILITIES..."The Commission shall require that qualifying facilities have the option to enter a fixed price contract whose term is at least as long as the term on which the incumbent utility recovers invests in new generation, whether self-built or in the form of a long-term power purchase agreement.’’.
Note the length of QF's under PURPA, this is an insert into PURPA. 40 year solar PPA agreements!
COMMUNITY SOLAR PROGRAMS..."Each electric utility shall offer a community solar program that provides all ratepayers, including low-income ratepayers, equitable and demonstrable access to such community solar program”…
Again an insert into PURPA for FERC to enforce on the distribution system.
For the first time FERC will have enforcement on all Municipal Utilities, even if they only have distribution only. I can see the impact on some of the Muni's with 200-500 customers, when FERC comes to call.
