    Austin City council ups solar procurement to 450MW

    John Parnell, 16 October 2015 PV Tech

    “The council of Austin, Texas voted to up its solar procurement plans to 450MW…[by the end of 2019 and its utility, Austin Energy,] is eyeing post-investment tax credit (ITC) savings by owning its solar assets itself…Documents from the meeting put the annual cost of procuring up to 650MW at US$44 million valuing the 25-year power purchase agreements at US$1.1 billion. Up to 450MW has been costed at US$17 million a year and US$425 million in total...Concerns over the impact on energy bills resulted in a 1% increase cap on consumer bills…A presentation by Austin Energy also dismissed the impact of the ITC's step-down from 30 to 10% at the end of 2016…The company said it had been offered power from post-ITC cut projects for less than 2% more than the cost of pre-2016 projects…[which plant ownership would offset] with lower build costs.” click here for more
