How do utility companies get the money to pay for feed in tariffs?



  1. 0 Votes

         With feed-in tariffs, utility companies pass the extra cost on to the consumer base. In Gainesville, Florida, the first US city to use feed-in tariffs, consumers pay only 74 cents more a month, one half of one percent of an average bill. In Germany, consumers pay the equivalent of an extra US$5 a month for their FIT program. 

         For most consumers the extra cost is negligible, and many are willing to pay it in order to promote alternative energy development.
