ASTGU Guideline Straw Proposal and Public Comments
On October 15, 2019, the Department issued proposed changes to the Guideline Regarding the Definition of Agricultural Solar Tariff Generation Units (“Guideline”). The Department collected public comments until November 6, 2019. Following the review of these comments, DOER has drafted a straw proposal of potential changes to the Guideline. The straw proposal for the Guideline can be found here.
The straw proposal removes many of the changes to the technical and application requirements that were proposed in October 2019. Instead, the straw proposal maintains many of the requirements in the existing version of the Guideline, dated April 26, 2018. Two areas that the Department contemplates modifying pertain to project size and opportunities for third-party certification.
The Department collected public comments on the straw proposal until Friday, October 30, 2020.
