Principal Solar Advisory Board Member Peter Lynch Releases White Paper Supporting Feed-in Tariffs

The paper examines how feed-in tariffs (FIT) can accelerate investment in renewable energy

DALLAS--Principal Solar, Inc (PSI; OTC Pink: PSWW), a publicly traded solar energy holding company executing a unique roll-up strategy to create the world's first distributed solar utility, today announced the release of "Feed-in Tariffs: The Proven Road Not Taken…Why Not?". Authored by PSI advisory board member J. Peter Lynch, the paper examines how feed-in tariffs (FIT) can accelerate investment in renewable energy, with FITs providing a guarantee that anyone who generates electricity from a renewable energy source can receive long-term payments for each kilowatt-hour produced.


"A FIT program is the most effective way to spark rapid development of the massive amount of renewable energy potential in the US," says Lynch, a pioneer in the renewable energy sector of the investment banking industry. "A FIT removes investor uncertainty by ensuring that anyone with access to sun or wind can receive funding for a set period of time."

Lynch will host a Webinar, "Why Not? The Case for an American Feed-In Tariff," for The Principal Solar Institute on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 12:00 p.m.-12:45 p.m. ET.
