REIP Overview
New Jersey Wind Market
  • The required wind resource (gt11mph) is along the
    shore and highlands.
  • Best example of installed project is at ACUA,
    similar interest building among at other coastal
    municipalities
  • Small wind projects have run into home rule
    issues first model ordinance adopted by Ocean
    Gate.
  • 2009 REIP plans dedicate 7.5M to small wind
    projects.
  • REIP supports Behind the Meter (BTM) projects
  • Rule changes required to support Group Net
    Metering and Community Wind
  • Offshore wind evaluation is underway (summary on
    NJCEP and NJDEP websites)

NJ Class I Renewable Energy
EPBB Overview
Electric energy produced from
  • Solar technologies, photovoltaic technologies,
    wind energy, fuel cells powered by renewable
    fuels, geothermal technologies, wave or tidal
    action,
  • and/or methane gas from landfills or a biomass
    facility, provided that the biomass is cultivated
    and harvested in a sustainable manner.
  • Types of class I renewable energy that qualify
    for use in meeting the requirements of this
    subchapter are set forth at N.J.A.C. 148-2.5.


13
Net-Metering and Interconnection Standards
EPBB Overview
  • Interconnection
  • State regulations that permit small generators (lt
    2MWs) to be installed behind the meter.
  • These generators cannot be sized to over produce
    based on current site consumption.
  • Mandates that utilities connect them to the grid.
  • Net-Metering
  • State regulations that allow interconnected
    generators to offset their electric consumption
    with an on-site resource.
  • Allows production of electricity beyond site
    consumption to be sold to the grid and be
    compensated at the wholesale price of energy.

14
Renewable Energy Value Drivers
EPBB Overview
Other???
Energy Value
Federal Investment Tax Credit
Capital Cost of System
Overhead Maintenance
Accelerated Depreciation Tax Impact
(S)REC Value
REIP Subsidy
15
EPBB Overview
Investment Tax Credit
  • 30-percent tax credit for both residential and
    commercial renewable energy installations
  •  
  • Eliminates the prohibition on utilities from
    benefiting from the credit
  • Allows Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) filers to
    take the credit
  • Calculated net of state rebate 

16
EPBB Calculations
Wind Incentives - EPBB
  • EPBB Incentive levels
  • This is different than the previous wind
    incentive level which was calculated on the
    capacity of the system.
  • Factors included in calculating annual input
  • Location specific wind speed
  • Hub Height
  • Obstructions within 500 feet

17
EPBB Calculations
Renewable Energy Incentive Program - EPBB
  • Wind Program Incentive is calculated based upon
    Expected Performance Based Buy-down (EPBB).
  • Expected performance based on output
  • Specific turbine
  • Specific site
  • How does the EPBB work?
  • Performance calculator calculates output for a
    given location
  • Input parameters
  • Wind speed at 50m
  • System hub height
  • Turbine power curve
  • The EPBB is designed to produce higher rebates
    for project which maximize power production
  • More closely calibrates with goals defined in the
    Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) and the Energy
    Master Plan (EMP).

18
EPBB Calculations
Renewable Energy Incentive Program - EPBB
  • Obtaining locals average annual wind speed
  • Wind maps for no charge are available at
  • http//firstlook.3tiergroup.com/
  • http//www.awstruewind.com/maps/united-states.cfm/
    region/46688
  • http//eosweb.larc.nasa.gov
  • Additionally a wind resource site assessment may
    be performed even though the average wind speed
    can be determined from the wind maps
  • Site assessments are performed by
  • Certified site assessor evaluates topography and
    site characteristics to give a more accurate
    evaluation
  • Engineering firm performs detailed site
    assessments including wind speed analysis based
    on anemometer readings

19
EPBB Calculations
Renewable Energy Incentive Program - EPBB
  • Wind turbine equipment currently accepted by the
    program
  • If a wind turbine is not presently accepted by
    the program the following information must be
    provided
  • Power curve based on one year of actual energy
    production data
  • Engineering certification form the manufacturer
    based on the power curve from an independent
    third party
  • To apply to the program applicant must complete
    a pre-application for guidance purposes

Model Wind Ordinances Adopted by 8 NJ Communities
NJDEP Fast Track Proposal
24
EPBB Calculations
Model Ordinance
  • The Model ordinance passed by Ocean Gate was
    designed to allow the development of wind
    projects in their community.
  • It acknowledges the NJ BPU Renewable Portfolio
    Standard
  • Their current zoning regulations to not inhibit
    the installation of wind projects there were
    unintentional barriers to developing wind
    projects
  • The Model Ordinance standardizes and streamlines
    the requirements for permitting wind turbine
    projects
  • The ordinance is designed to preserve and protect
    public health and safety without significantly
    increasing the cost or decreasing the efficiency
    of a wind project.
  • The ordinance addresses the following issues
  • Standards
  • Setbacks
  • Access
  • Permit requirements
  • Abandonment
  • Administration and enforcement

25
Small Scale Wind Myth Busters
NIMBY Issues
  • Wind turbines kill birds, bats and butterflies
  • Wind turbines are noisy
  • The towers are prone to falling over
  • Turbines interfere with TV and Radio reception
  • Wind turbines hurt property values
  • Turbines may throw blades or ice from the blades
  • Wind power is expensive and inefficient
  • Wind turbines only operate a small percentage of
    the time
