A discussion of Sustainable Energy on the Portland Oregon Public Access program Independent Producers Organization Live Showcase. Program is hosted by Jim Lockhart and Richard Carpenter, producers at Portland Community Media. Guests are Mark Pengilly, who has worked to replicate a German style Feed-In Tariff law in Oregon for three years, following a trip to Germany in 2006; and Jeff Bissonnette, of the Oregon Citizens Utility Board, who recently returned from a similar trip. Main topic of discussion is the Feed In Tariff system of energy production that would allow electricity customers to generate and sell renewable energy to their utilities. Known in the US as "CLEAN Contracts" and globally as FITs (Feed-in Tariffs), these policies open the energy market to many new participants, attract capital, bring down the cost of renewables, and create good, local jobs. FITs are responsible for approximately 75% of global solar photovoltaic and 45% of global wind deployment." Mark is very supportive of these systems, while Jeff is more critical.
