Please visit www.FAREnergy.org - The Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy would like to make Florida a leader in solar energy. Since 1991, Germany, Spain, Denmark, and over 40 other nations, states, and provinces, have pioneered legislation that have proven to promote the fastest, cheapest, and widest growth of renewable energy. In many of these countries these policies are called "Feed-In Tariffs" (FITs). Producers of renewable energy are paid a premium rate or "tariff" for each kilowatt of energy they "feed into" the grid. Here in North America FITs are being called, "Renewable Energy Payments" (REPs). The name has changed but the fundamental principles of these policies stay the same:
Everyone who produces renewable energy is guaranteed that they can connect to the power grid and sell their energy to their utility company. There is no limit to the amount of renewable energy that can be sold to utility companies.
Utility companies sign 15-20 year contracts with all their renewable energy producers. All contracts are transparent and open for inspection.
The contracts include long-term agreed upon prices that the utility companies will pay for the energy they buy. The prices are set high enough to be an incentive to new producers and for existing producers to expand their production capacities. Prices vary according to the source of the energy (i.e, sun, wind, water, bio-mass, etc.) and the size of the energy-producing installation.
The utility companies can recoup their increased costs of paying higher prices for renewable energy by spreading these costs among all their customers.
An Independent Review Board is established by the government that periodically sets the prices and terms for new contracts.
How do REPs work?
Renewable Energy Payments are the mechanisms or instruments at the heart of specific state, provincial or national renewable energy policies. REPs are incentives for homeowners, farmers, businesses, etc., to become producers of renewable energy, or to increase their production of renewable energy. As such, they increase our overall production and use of renewable energy, and decrease our consumption and burning of fossil fuels.
Thank you! Happy Holidays!

As I'm sure you've seen from the traffic on the site, we're making a big push in the next couple of days to delivered printed copies of the Pickens Pledge petitions to the local campaign offices of the presidential candidates.
In addition to some of the smaller local offices the candidates have set up, I want to make sure we get the petitions delivered to the state headquarters offices for Obama and McCain in Florida. Obama's state HQ is in Tampa; McCain's is in Tallahassee.
Among the Florida members you've interacted with on Push, are there any folks who come to mind in Tampa or Tallahassee for whom it might be fairly convenient to drop by one of the candidates' HQs?
There is now a brand new group just for the Tampa Bay area. Please join and let's see what an impact we can make. I think it would be great if we can organize some sort of meet up and work together. If you agree here is the group to join and get things started! Get in on the ground floor and be a difference-maker.
It is great to meet you and connect with you on Pickens where there are many excellent ideas, and a huge group of people helping our country go forward with Alternative Energy.
You may be interested in Joining some of the more than 750 groups on Pickens, and I want to invite you to Join our "Mariah Power" Group on Pickens Plan. Our address is:
We will keep you up to date on the "Windspire", and the new models about to be released. We will also give you the important Energy issues in front of Congress and the latest news on Alternative Energy. I hope you will decide to join.
Let me know if I can be of help, or if you care for more information.
