Better Than Net Metering

turbines

According to viagra usa a Washington Post article, the province of where to find tramadol Ontario is requiring utility companies to pay premium rates for energy generated from solar, wind, hydro orbio-electric production.
 
Solar generated electricity will receive 42 cents per kilowatt hour.  Other forms of generation will receive from 11 to 14.5 cents per kilowatt hour.  Thisis a premium, since electric rates average 5.8 cents per kilowatt hour in the province.

While there are places in the United States that require net metering (paying the same retail rate for surplus electricity generated that the customer payswhen they draw power from the visit our site cheapest levitra uk grid), this is the first instance in North America where a premium is soft viagra looks like being paid for surplus electricity.
 
As a result, there has been a great deal of activity in setting up new powersystems, particularly new photovoltaic systems, across the province.  With this premium, payback on a solar PV system is reduced from 50 years to 15 years.

Could be damaging.

I am a fan of small scale power generation, although the returns are usually far below those promised.

But this seems rather shortsighted to me, if enough people start to feed power back into the buy viagra generic network and good choice pfizer levitra canada that power is paid for by the utility company at way over market prices. Surely with dropping revenue, either the utility companies will have to raise their prices, or cut back on maintenance to www.chopperssportsgrill.com the power grid infrastructure, neither of which is desirable.

I suspect that "early adopters" will be the ones to install these alternative systems. Once the initial flurry of activity falls off, the addition of new systems will probably fall dramatically. As a result, the electricity will be more expensive, but probably not ruinously so.

Of course, I have no data to support my assertions; I'm just making an educated guess.

Initially...very proud being from Ontario right about now! Even if it is shortsighted, I think it's a great start. Like General Electric canibalizing their own industry by emphasizing the swirl bulbs...someone was going to do it, why not them! I reckon it's a positive thing that incentives such as paying premiums for energy are actually getting APPROVED. The human race has never had a hard time coming up with ways to make money... I'm sure if this premium becomes a problem the energy companies have some clever people on it to find a way to survive ;)
