The North Carolina Solar Center and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, through the joint Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency, released information October 24 concluding that attempts to roll back state renewable portfolio standards in legislative sessions across the country were mostly unsuccessful this year. Of 19 bills introduced, five that would have repealed or frozen state standards and 14 that would have weakened them, only three were approved – in Ohio, New Hampshire, and Virginia. Twenty-nine states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have renewable portfolio standards, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory predicts that related electric generation will exceed 150 million MWh by 2015.
