Renewable Energy

Feed-in-Tarriff (FIT)

In February, 2012, the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter Energy Committee published a white paper on Renewable Energy and Green Jobs Policy for the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter Energy Committee: CLEAN-FIT programs: Clean Local Energy Accessible Now – Feed in Tariff (FIT).  Feed-in-Tariff is the more commonly used name for the system. 

Feed-In Tariff programs are an efficient method of maximizing both job creation and rapid renewable energy deployment.
