In a long-awaited decision involving wind and solar energy, the Idaho Public Utilities Commission established new rules and regulations for such projects, says an Associated Press story in the Idaho Press-Tribune.

Both sides involved in the issue--those favoring alternative energy projects and those opposed due to the high cost of paying for such power--found something to like in the decision. Wind and solar projects are now limited by size in qualifying for federal contracts, but the commission did not strike down a provision that establishes 20-year contracts. Utilities in the state wanted five-year agreements.
