What is a renewable portfolio standard? At their core, renewable portfolio standard –also known as renewable energy standards or RPS – are laws that require a certain percentage of a state’s electricity consumption to be generated by renewable resources. In most cases, an RPS passes through state legislative bodies before being signed by governors, meaning they are less susceptible to changes in state administrations. As a result, renewable portfolio standards are an example of states leveraging long-term policy stability in order to help grow the renewable energy industry locally. How many states have RPS? Twenty-nine states, Washington, D.C., and three territories have adopted an RPS, while eight states and one territory have set renewable energy goals. -------------------LUNCH WILL BE SERVED ------------------- ----------------------ALL ARE WELCOME---------------------- Join us as we work collaboratively towards an equitable & resilient energy future for New Orleans.
