LIPA Clean Solar Initiative Projects with active PPA’s

Long Island Power Authority Clean Solar Initiative (CSI) Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Projects.

By resolution dated June 28, 2012, the Trustees established LIPA’s Clean Solar Initiative Feed-In Tariff under SC-11 for the purchase of up to 50 MW of distributed solar PV generation renewable resources for a fixed price of $0.22 per KWh under a 20-year PPA (“FIT 1”).

To effectuate the FIT I, participants were required to enter into an interconnection agreement pursuant to LIPA’s Smart Grid Small Generator Interconnection Procedures and execute a 20-year PPA, Under CSI FIT 1 the solar PV generators are required to sell to LIPA 100% of the output (energy, capacity and renewable energy certificates) and are not eligible for other LIPA incentive programs, such as LIPA’s Solar Entrepreneur rebates or net metering.

Applications for participation in the CSI FIT 1 were accepted starting July 16, 2012 with the rate of $0.22 per kWh of electricity delivered to LIPA’s grid over a 20-year contract term subject to the PPA. FIT I was fully subscribed and projects commenced commercial operation during 2014.

LIPA Clean Solar Initiative Projects with active PPA’s are listed below
