Clean Solar Initiative Feed-In Tariff II (FIT-II) - 100MW
Second Solar Feed-In Tariff for Interconnection of Distributed Resource Equipment from 100kW up to 2MW in Parallel with the LIPA Distribution System
Building off the success of its first Clean Solar Initiative feed-in tariff, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has begun the process to bring online an additional 100 megawatts (MW) of solar energy through its Clean Solar Initiative-II (CSI-II) program.
The new program provides significant enhancements to LIPA’s existing program. The 100 MW from CSI-II builds upon LIPA’s first program with a portion of the 100 MW targeting the South Fork on the East End in order to reduce load on constrained areas. To encourage solar investment in areas of the South Fork that will provide the greatest benefits to the LIPA electric system, a solar price premium of approximately 7 cents per kilowatt-hour will be available for projects built in the designated areas located east of LIPA’s Canal Substation in Southampton. Reducing the load constraint in this area will help defer, reduce or eliminate the need to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in building new generation, infrastructure, and transmission and distribution lines.
Clean Solar Initiative Feed-In Tariff (FIT) - 50MW
As of October 7, 2013 FIT-I has closed upon the opening of FIT-II.
LIPA’s Clean Solar Initiative Feed-In Tariff (FIT) is a program in which the owner of an eligible solar photovoltaic (PV) electric system is paid a fixed rate for every solar kilowatt hour generated over the term of a Purchase Power Agreement (PPA) between the owner and LIPA which will have a 20-year term. FIT project MUST be interconnected at the distribution level of 13.2 kV.
