Palo Alto, Calif. Feed-In Tariff

A feed-in tariff is an excellent way to fund community supported energy projects with groups of small investors.

"...a pilot program for the City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) -- the first year is capped at 4 megawatts and meant for medium-sized commercial rooftops with a minimum size of 50 kilowatts per installation. The FIT is applicable to solar only, although other renewable energy sources could be considered later on. The city will pay $0.14 per kilowatt-hour for 20-year contracts."
