Three New England states plan joint solicitations for renewable energy

Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont are working together to fast-track a joint solicitation aimed at creating a significant buyer's market for renewable energy and driving down its costs in New England, Connecticut officials said Monday during a news conference.

 

Connecticut also plans to increase its state's renewable portfolio standard and take the controversial step of letting large hydroelectric projects participate.

 

"The key here is that the demand for renewable is going to rise rapidly," said Dan Esty, commissioner of the state's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
