Consultants Report on Approaches to Mitigate Solar Development Volatility

At the request of Board Staff, the Center for Energy (CEEEP), Economic and Environmental Policy (Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University) has been asked to conduct a literature review of national and international approaches to mitigate solar development volatility, and to retain a Consultant on behalf of the Board. The Consultant’s tasks are to augment and supplement CEEEP’s literature review, review the public record compiled by Board Staff, write a report (draft and final) detailing its findings, provide specific short term and long term recommendations regarding approaches to mitigate solar development volatility in New Jersey, and present its results at a public forum hosted by CEEEP at the Bloustein School in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

The links below include the relevant documents in the proceedings to develop the report on Solar Development Volatility toward fulfilling the requirements of the Solar Act of 2012.
