The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio this week granted FirstEnergy's force majeure application to reduce its 2010 in-state solar requirement under Ohio's renewable portfolio standard (RPS). The Commission reduced FirstEnergy's solar requirement from the 3,206 solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) that the company was supposed to procure under the RPS to the 1,629 in-state SRECS that it actually acquired. At the same time, however, the Commission followed its own precedent in previous force majeure cases and increased FirstEnergy's 2011 solar requirement by the amount of its 2010 shortfall. The full order is available here.
