Expert testimony in solar qualifying facilities disputes

Supported a client in complex disputes concerning multiple solar PV qualifying facilities. These are generating facilities defined under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act, which requires utilities to buy electricity from renewable energy projects of up to 80 MW in size at the “avoided cost” the utility would otherwise spend to purchase or generate the electricity. Bates White’s work involved complex power flow analysis and production cost studies; estimation of the just and reasonable interconnection cost of the facilities; and calculation of the avoided cost associated with the facilities.
