CGA delivers wins for solar.
Prevented the Michigan State Tax Commission from implementing an alternative specific personal property tax rate for solar assets that would have been the highest in the Midwest.
Decreasing Solar Dispatch Costs
Eliminating cost barriers to interconnection for solar from 50% to 0% contributed to significant growth of solar in the MISO queue. There is more solar in the MISO queue today than any other resource.
Allowing Surplus Interconnection after Decision Point 2
This first-in-the-nation policy change enables better planning, efficiencies in design and construction, and increased earlier revenues for solar projects. It sets an example for other systems to follow.
Defeated Bad Set-back Bill
Successfully defeated an unreasonable set-back bill in Minnesota that affected state parks, wildlife management areas and other public recreational facilities.
Accelerated Solar + Storage Development
Advocated for the adoption of 1,000 MW solar/wind/storage rather than new natural gas in a utility Integrated Resource Plan in Minnesota.
