My colleagues Laura Suesser and Julia Pettit reported on a significant victory for solar development prospects in Utah.

On October 1, 2012, the Public Service Commission of Utah approved Rocky Mountain Power’s Solar Incentive Program, which will support 60 MW of new distributed solar PV resources in Utah over the next five years (2013-2017).

The program will provide approximately $50 million in incentives and will support 60 MW of new distributed solar resources, allocated among three sectors: Residential (systems up to 4 kW), Small Non-Residential (systems up to 25 kW), and Large Non-Residential (systems up to 1,000 kW). Rocky Mountain Power will start accepting applications in January 2013 for the first program year.

For more details about the program, read Laura’s and Julia’s client alert.
