Gainesville, Fl first in nation to buy electricity from its clients

In Gainesville, Florida the local utility company is operating a pilot program which if successful, will be implemented statewide or even nationally. Some clients place solar panels on their roofs create energy which goes directly into the Utility Companies energy grid and these clients are actually profiting by selling the electricity back at a higher rate to the Utility Companies. This is a first test program, any where in the nation and it already has some clients taking part in this program. Read the article at www.earth2tech.com and read the details. Many opportunities for utility consumers to create thier own energy and resell to the utility companies at a profit which in turn resells energy created less expensively to other consumers locally and nationally. How great is that!
