Utility scale projects differ from net-metered projects in that the power generated is sold directly to a utility or other third party. These projects typically have twenty to twenty-five year contracts for the sale of the power. Negotiating the various regulatory issues for successfully selling the power produced is complex and ever-changing. There are new opportunities for selling power, known as Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) and Renewable Energy Certificates (REC), that combine with current tax and other financial incentives to create compelling ROI. These opportunities are causing very rapid development in the solar industry. REP Energy has long been at the forefront of these issues, participating in the development of solar energy policy and the establishment of interconnection procedure.
