States must permit "alternative energy" types of resources to qualify for a standard or separate tier of a standard.

Prior to 2008, Pennsylvania was the only state to permit "alternative energy" types of resources to qualify for a standard or as a separate tier exclusive of a standard.

Alternative Resources

But, in 2008, Massachusetts, Ohio and Michigan adopted policies permitting the inclusion of alternative resources (in some capacity). In 2009, West Virginia adopted an alternative and renewable energy standard, with no minimum renewables requirement, and Illinois adopted a "clean coal" standard separate from its existing RPS.
