    Ultimately the consumer will pay the feed in tariff. Directly, either the government will pay the excess over the market rate for the utility, or the government will require the utility to pay the renewable producer directly. In the first case – the cost of paying the feed in tariff comes from taxpayers and interest on money lent in foreign securities (usually bonds). In the second case the utility pays directly for the renewable power, then either adjusts the cost of electricity to reflect that cost (this is the case in Germany where the average consumer pays about 4 euros a month more, or, like ConEdison in New York, who sells the renewable at a higher price to people who would like to buy carbon neutral or green energy.
