Policy Initiative Launches StatePowerProject.org

State policies promoting the deployment of renewable energy have played important roles in the rapid growth of wind and solar energy.  But over the past few years, those policies are increasingly being challenged as unconstitutional.  Challenges are wide ranging but most focus on two grounds: preemption by the federal government, or State overreach into interstate commerce.

Harvard Law School’s Environmental Policy Initiative is launching Statepowerproject.org, to track these cases.  The site includes summaries of litigation, background about key concepts, and the judicial decisions and filed briefs.  We offer the site as a clearinghouse and reference for stakeholders, students, and researchers with an interest in these cases.
