    what does #4 refer to.  It sounds like a renewable portfolio standard, which is a major incentive for renewables mostly.  

    (Great job, as always.  I was reading something of yours and laughed out loud, and I had to explain to my fiancee who this Muskegon critic guy is.  Did you make it to NN 2012?  YOu going to 2013?)

        I'm guessing the "clean energy standard"is a fake effort to gut the RPSs?  I hadn't heard of that one yet.

        (for those just tuning in, an RPS is a requirement that utilities purchase a certain amount of their electricity supply from renewable sources.  Here in California, the big utilities are required to buy 20% of their electricity from renewables, and that is going up to 33% by 2025 or 2020, I think.  It has been a significant component of the efforts to spur renewable development here as developers of various kinds are effectively guaranteed a buyer for their power from a utility that hasn't met the target.  ALso, the way California is doing it, out of state utilities can sell credits for their power, which provides a secondary income stream for producers.  If you pencil out these projects, that second stream can make or break a project in some cases.)
