DDI ’08 2 Ciborowski RPS Neg 1NC States CP Solvency States empirically solve RPS better than the national government because they can customize the RPS Kraneburg 2008 (Roger Kranenburg, Edison Electric Institute, “Legal & Regulatory: One-size RPS does not fit all”, Jan 2008 http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa5392/is_200801/ai_n21302117 ) [Ciborowski] States are moving forward with their own programs to promote renewable energy sources. As of September 2007, 24 states and the District of Columbia had established an RPS. Four other states had nonbinding goals for adopting renewables, and 48 states now support programs that offer consumers incentives, grants, loans, or rebates to use renewable energy resources. Each state's RPS plan includes carefully considered timetables and targets based upon its own unique circumstances and available energy sources. A federal RPS that imposes different targets and timetables could undercut or preempt those efforts. This would create uncertainty and drive up the cost of meeting renewable mandates even further for electricity suppliers and consumers in those states. Even among states that have an RPS, all have chosen to add energy sources unique to their areas, such as geothermal power, which are not included in the broad-sweeping federal RPS proposals. Many state programs also include technologies such as fuel cells, as well as alternative means of compliance such as energy-efficiency programs, which are not recognized in the federal plans.

DDI ’08 3 Ciborowski RPS Neg States solve States have empirically solved RPS Rickerson et al. 2008 (Wilson Rickerson, Florian Bennhold, James Bradbury, “Feed-in Tariffs and Renewable Energy in the USA – a Policy Update”, May 2008, http://www.eesi.org/briefings/2008/061808_hboell_rep/Feed-in%20Tariffs%20and %20Renewable%20Energy%20in%20the%20USA%20-%20a%20Policy%20Update.pdf ) [Ciborowski] During the past decade, there has been remarkable progress in renewable energy policy development in the US, particularly at the state level. As can be seen in figure 1 below, there are currently 26 states with mandatory renewable portfolio standards (RPS) in the United States, and another six states have established non-binding renewable energy goals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
