The Gainesville Regional Utilities would buy all the energy produced by a solar photovoltaic system for a guaranteed rate per kilowatt hour. The GRU's current incentive system offers a cash rebate of $1.50 per watt of photovoltaic panel installed. For residential units, the limit on the rebate is $7,500 and for a business, the limit is $37,500. This means that buildings that generate the most solar energy receive the least incentive to install panels. Under this proposal, large solar installations would receive the most incentive. As in Tallahassee, the GRU uses net-metering to credit consumers for energy that is generated in excess of consumption. The "feed in tariff" would be funded through an increase in the fuel adjustment rate and would eliminate the cash rebate and net-metering. It is estimated that there is roof-top potential for the solar production of 80 megawatts of electricity in the Gainesville area. This program could be coupled with the federal tax incentives for renewable energy mentioned in this blog post below.
