Jobs for Today. Jobs for Tomorrow. A Strategy for Oregon's Economic Prosperity, John Kitzhaber for Governor 2010

"Feed-in tariff (FIT) for Community Renewable Energy Production: These have radically increased domestic renewable energy production and propelled huge wind and solar industries in Germany, Spain, Denmark and Britain. Through the FIT, homeowners can install solar and wind generators on their property and sell the energy back to the grid at a premium price. A well-designed FIT encourages community buy-in and support, builds the local economy with green-jobs, and provides stable markets that encourage local investment. Oregon’s pilot program for feed-in tariff’s, enacted through House Bill 3039 (2009), will give us additional information to design a FIT that will work across Oregon." (Pg 16)
