ABSTRACT
The article reports on the extension of the placed-in-service date for renewable energy resources through December 31, 2007 under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 in the U.S. The extension provides opportunity for the industry to develop more wind power plants. Windproject owners face imbalance charges from operators when they fail to deliver power. The Utility Wind Interest Group helps to solve such issues.
