    In a potentially crushing strike against advocates for renewable energy mandates, a federal court ruling recently raised the issue of constitutionality of major provisions of many statesí renewable energy mandates.

    On June 7, 2013, U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Federal Energy Regulatory Commissionís (FERC) position against the state of Michigan (and other petitioners) in a disagreement over FERCís proposal to distribute costs for new power lines to supply millions of megawatts of wind power in the Great Lakes area. Michigan believes that this plan would, in essence, require them to pay for expensive new power lines intended for transmitting renewable energy out of the state. Based on the law establishing Michiganís 2008 Renewable Energy Standard, only renewable energy generated inside its state borders is qualified to fulfill Michiganís obligation to utilize 10% of eligible renewable energy sources by 2015.
