This report evaluates the success of state-level feed-in tariffs in the United States in fostering the development of renewable energy and in accomplishing various socio-economic goals such as encouraging growth and job creation. Feed-in tariffs in several states are compared to those in Europe and are assessed by their impact on renewable energy deployment, electricity prices, and job creation. Potential for interaction between state-level and federal policies is examined.
