Feed-In Tariff

RCEA is fostering local renewable energy projects through a Feed-In Tariff Program.

The Feed-In Tariff Program offers a price for community scale renewable energy projects that you can take to the bank!


How does it work?

RCEA is offering standardized 20-year fixed price contracts for new renewable energy projects under one MW in Humboldt County.

Current Available Programmatic Capacity: 4.5 MW

Current Price: $90/MWh

Market Adjusting Pricing

The base price for the FIT is subject to periodic adjustments based on the local market. In each two-month period, (not including the first period, which will be three-months), 2 MWs of capacity will be available for contract.

  • At the end of each period, if 0-25% of the available capacity is claimed the base price in the next period will increase by $0.002/kilowatt-hour (kWh) [$2.00/MWh].
  • If 25%-75% of the period capacity is claimed, the base price in the next period will stay the same.
  • If 75%-100% of the capacity is brought under contract, the base price for the next period will decrease by $0.002/kilowatt-hour (kWh) [$2.00/MWh].

Once a contract is established, that project will receive a fixed price for the 20-year life of the contract.

The base price for each new period will be available on this page by the first day of each period.
