It's interesting the article mentions that the excess energy produced by the system will be pushed back into the grid for public use. Since it is a Government entity, at what cost to the consumer will the power be billed at? It is taxpayer monies going to pay for the facility, then could not it be considered a public electricity generation facility? As more of this type of power project is built, it will be interesting to see what laws will be put into effect, or lack of laws to protect the public from double taxation. Once to build the project and again on the product it produces.
