Over 1 megawatt of net-metered solar photovoltaic (PV) equipment has been installed in Tallahassee and is generating clean, renewable energy from the sun.
Here's how it works: Install approved PV or solar electric panels that operate in conjunction with the City's electric grid. This will provide your business and the City with clean and renewable energy. When you're generating your own power with rooftop solar photovoltaic panels, your electric meter will essentially "spin backwards" with Net Metering, thereby lowering your monthly electric bill. Any excess solar energy produced during the daytime offsets consumption at your premise at night. Similarly, the excess power (generated by small to moderate-sized PV units-up to 100 kilowatts) may be returned to Your Own Utilities at the full retail value, including taxes.
