Incentive/Summary Modeled after the successful Sustainable a …
Modeled after the successful Sustainable and Natural Alternative Power (SNAP) program in Chelan County, Washington, Austin Public Utilities' Solar Choice program encourages customers to install photovoltaic solar arrays and connect them to their utilities' electrical distribution system by offering an incentive payment based on the system's production on a $/kWh basis. The amount paid by Austin Utilities to solar energy producers depends on the total amount contributed by that utility's purchasers through the solar green pricing program - Solar Choice. The greater the amount contributed by purchasers, the greater the amount that will be distributed among participating producers, up to a maximum of $1.00 per kWh. This amount is considered payment for the green attributes of the electricity only, and is additional to retail rates the producer may receive for their electricity under the state's net metering laws. Producers are compensated for the total electricity produced, not the total exported to the grid. To sign up and become a Solar Choice purchaser, simply submit information on the Austin Utilities' [http://www.austinutilities.com/environment_solar_signUp.asp online Participation Form] or contact the Austin Utilities' Energy Services Department at 507-433-8886. This program began on October 1, 2005. Actual rates paid to producers are posted annually. The first payment took place in April 2007. The maximum generation project that may be interconnected with the distribution system is 40 kilowatts. Solar Choice is not for customers who want to install renewable energy sources for back-up power generation at their home or business.
