The utility-scale solar market isn't just expanding in terms of capacity and generation -- it's also expanding in terms of incentives and revenue streams.

In 2012, 89 percent of utility-scale solar in the U.S. was procured through state-level renewable portfolio standards. This year, however, only 48 percent will be procured through these targets. Why are state-level mandates becoming so much less important for big solar?

In this week's Interchange, we'll talk with GTM Research solar analyst Colin Smith about the increasing diverse array of methods being used to develop solar power plants in America. We'll look at PURPA, wholesale retail contracts, utility voluntary procurement, and merchant projects.
