The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has announced plans to bring online an additional 100 MW of solar energy through its Clean Solar Initiative-II (CSI-II) program.

CSI-II builds upon LIPA's first Clean Solar Initiative feed-in tariff, and all 100 MW will be generated on Long Island, with a portion targeting the South Fork on the East End.

To encourage solar investment in areas of the South Fork, a solar price premium of approximately $0.07/kWh will be available for projects built in the designated areas located east of LIPA’s Canal Substation in Southampton. LIPA says reducing the load constraint in this area will help defer, reduce or eliminate the need to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in building new generation, infrastructure, and transmission and distribution lines.

Following public input and LIPA board of trustees action, it is anticipated that applications for participation in CSI-II will be accepted from Sept. 30, 2013, to Jan. 31, 2014. The final price for the winning bidders will be fixed for 20 years.
