How does the Oregon Feed in Tariff work?

A different model (and one used in Germany for instance) is to pay a premium for kWh as they are generated. This is known as a traditional feed in tariff model. Oregon's model will differ slightly in that you will not operate as a mini power producer for the grid, but will use the power on site to offset your electric costs. As well as saving money on your bill you will receive an additional incentive amount from the utility for your solar electricity production. You will be subject to current net metering policies which restrict system sizes to produce equal or less than the energy consumed on site on an annual basis.
