TVA Green Power Switch Generation Partners program

http://www.tva.gov/greenpowerswitch/partners/index.htm
is a pilot program purchasing pv or wind generated power from homeowners at 15cents/kWh - about twice the retail rate.
Guaranteed buy-back rate subsidies have serious advantages over installation subsidies.  The systems have to keep working well in order to earn the subsidy. Currently, Sheffield Utilities is the only Alabama Utility participating in this program.
