This briefing paper summarizes innovative approaches and practices that have worked effectively for state clean energy programs in providing small renewable project incentives. For example, states should commit and release funding in a way that ensures long-term continuity of the program (e.g., 5 to 10 years), allowing local markets to develop and stabilize. States should also consider establishing a gradually declining level of rebates, zeroing out after 10 years.
