Renewable Energy Production Incentive

Supported by the state’s Renewable Development Fund, Minnesota offers a payment of 1.0¢ to 1.5¢ per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for electricity generated by hydro facilities and on-farm anaerobic manure methane digesters. This incentive is available to hydro facilities located at the site of a dam, if the dam was in existence as of March 31, 1994, and begins generating electricity after July 1, 1994 or generates electricity after substantial refurbishing of a facility that begins after July 1, 2001. In order to receive payments, qualifying hydro facilities must begin operation by December 31, 2011.
