Over 1.6 megawatts 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 more power than you can use with rooftop solar photovoltaic panels, your electric meter will essentially "spin backwards" with net-metering, thereby lowering your monthly electric bill. Excess solar energy produced during the daytime offsets consumption at your premise at night. 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.
Find out how much electricity you could produce by using the National Renewable Energy Laboratory Solar Calculator.
