Federal Energy & Fiscal Policies Effecting Utility Feeder Systems


Federal policies including government programs and fiscal policy tax incentives are providing business opportunities for renewable energy developers. One beneficiary of these policies that is not obvious is the regulated utility market that is taking energy from these activities.  Is this the model that will help transform the generation mix of utilities? Who has the best hand to play, developers or utilities?
