On June 25, 2013, Glendale's City Council approved a Feed-in Tariff (FiT) for purchased energy from eligible small-scale renewable energy resources located within Glendale's service territory. A FiT, is a standard price offered to pay producers of renewable power for the power that the producer feeds into the grid. The renewable/environmental attributes associated with the power are transferred to the City and help the City achieve its Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Requirements. Glendale has developed Standard Form Agreements which set forth the terms and conditions that allow Glendale customers and renewable resource developers to locate renewable generation facilities in Glendale's service territory and to sell the energy output to Glendale. These Standard Form Agreements offer customers and developers new opportunities to partner with Glendale in the development of efficient renewable generation facilities - and will help Glendale meet its RPS.
The Standard Form Agreements simplify the power purchase and interconnection process for renewable energy, establishing standard rates and terms for customers and developers to interconnect into Glendale's distribution system and sell their power to Glendale. The Standard Form Agreements are designed for facilities up to 1.4 megawatts (AC) in size that will be connected to Glendale's local distribution system. The amount of energy to be purchased from customers and developers is currently capped at 4.2 megawatts.
