At its June 29, 2006 Business Meeting, the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) adopted revisions to the Existing Renewable Facilities Program Guidebook (Guidebook), publication number CEC-300-2006-011-F. According to Public Resources Code Section 25747, the Energy Commission is authorized to adopt substantive changes to the Guidebook after providing 10 days written notice.

The adopted revisions to the Guidebook maintain the current target price and cap used for calculating production incentives. These values are being maintained to reflect changes to market and contractual conditions as well as inflation. The revisions to the Guidebook are as follows:

  • Maintain the target price and funding cap for Tier 1 biomass facilities only, at 5.87 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) and 1.5 cents/kWh respectively from July 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. The target price and funding cap were scheduled to decrease by 0.5 cents/kWh, to 5.37 cents/kWh and 1.0 cents/kWh respectively, on July 1, 2006.
