"A society built on green design, sustainable energy and closed loop systems, a civilization afloat on a cloud of efficient, non-toxic, recyclable technology." ~~Alex Nikolai Steffan



A long time ago, back in 2009, this post introduced the City of Gainesville's feed tariff project to provide incentives for going solar, the first in the nation.  How is it doing?

A recent post on the Climate Progress blog reports that since launching their program, Gainesville has experienced a 3,400% increase in solar power capacity.

The City’s 11.45 megawatts (MW) of installed solar capacity make it the national leader in per capita rate of installed solar.  Other states have followed, recognizing a viable opportunity for expanding production of cost-effective, clean local energy.  

Called CLEAN (Clean Local Energy Accessible Now), it is becoming a cost-effective solution for building stable clean energy markets.

More information is available at the CLEAN Coalition website.
