Judy explains the Feed-In Tariff system and movement to make this available to citizens in Oregon. Their website gives a brief synopsis of what this means: "Feed-In Tariffs are policies designed to increase the production of renewable energy. A FIT law permits utility customers to produce renewable energy and sell it to their utility for a profit."
