TVA (federal government) co-generator households and business are PAYING 100% consumer rate for what they generate before their co-generation credit is applied to their bill.
The theory that justifies this? They use power as well as generate it. It does not matter if the household or business uses less power than they generate, they are first billed 100% of the going rate for the power they generate, then their co-generation credit is applied.
TVA's Susan Ross defended the policy because "they use the power as well".
How will Obama's green government get private parties to participate if they shaft them on the accounting before the private parties can even make their first penny?
