Why did we create the 50 States Reports?

The electric power industry is in a period of rapid policy and regulatory change – changes which are often challenging and time-consuming to keep track of. The 50 States report series is intended to keep industry stakeholders informed of policy and regulatory changes in the clean energy sector with timely, comprehensive, and unbiased updates. Reports provide a complete review of quarterly actions, summarized by our team of state policy experts, along with links to primary sources, summary graphics, and analysis.

Who are our customers?

Our customers include clean energy businesses, utilities, capital investment and financial advisory firms, law firms, consultants, researchers, universities, trade associations, and advocacy organizations. Among other benefits, the 50 States reports offer valuable time and financial savings, a tool to help identify new markets and investment opportunities, and a source to easily compare policy approaches taken by other states and utilities.

Who is eligible for complimentary copies?

Complimentary copies of 50 States reports are available upon request to state and federal lawmakers, state utility commissioners, state utility commission staff, state consumer advocate office staff, and state energy office staff.
