EPA Provides Clean Energy Incentive Program Design Details
Comment Period Now Open
On June 30, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published proposed design details for the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) in the Federal Register. The CEIP is a voluntary program that states may adopt if they wish to incentivize the implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects ahead of the start of Clean Power Plan compliance periods. While a basic proposal outlining the CEIP was included as a component of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan published in October 2015, the proposed design details provide specificity with regard to the scope, structure and mechanics of the program.
