Biodigesters and small wind systems need higher buyback reates
In testimony offered during the Wisconsin Public Service Commission’s proceedings on a rate request from Madison Gas and Electric, RENEW Wiscosin gave testimony in support of higher rates for the electricity a utility buys from biodigesters and small wind systems.
In the testimony, RENEW’s executive director Michael Vickerman said:
What these market sectors need instead are tariffs that are uniform across utility boundaries and are fixed at their production costs for a specified period of time. To make that wish a reality, we would urge the Commission to open a generic docket for the purpose of setting uniform tariffs that will stimulate the installation renewable energy systems presently being supported through the Focus on Energy renewable energy program.
