Marin Clean Energy - Feed-In Tariff Plus

May 24, 2024


Marin Clean Energy (MCE), a Community Choice Aggregator, provides an incentive for its customers to install renewable energy systems through the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Plus Program. MCE will pay for all energy, environmental attributes, capacity, and if applicable, storage-related services and attributes delivered by the system at a fixed rate based on metered energy quantities multiplied by the applicable contract price for the delivery term.

The contract price is scheduled to step down over time as the installed capacity of all participating systems increases.  As of May 2024 there are 10.8 MW remaining on the 5th of 6 steps, with an energy price of $60 per MWh. All systems must be paired with energy storage with a capacity equal to at least 180% of the AC inverter nameplate of the system. Storage must be of 4 hour duration. See program website for complete details.
