Production Incentives for Renewable Energy
NC GreenPower, a statewide green-power program designed to encourage the use of renewable energy in North Carolina, offers production payments for grid-tied electricity generated by solar, wind, small hydro (10 megawatts or less) and biomass resources. Payment arrangements for electricity generated by most renewable-energy systems are available through a periodic request for proposals (RFP) process. However, owners of small solar-energy systems and small wind-energy systems (10 kilowatts or less) may apply to receive program incentives at any time. Production incentives are based on the amount expected to make the installation of renewable-energy systems approach economic feasibility. The incentives, which include payments from utility power-purchase agreements, are made on a per-kWh basis and vary by technology.
