On Tuesday, June 25, 2013, the Florida Public Service Commission approved several measures in an effort to foster the growth and development of the renewable energy market in Florida. Most notably, the Florida PSC approved standardized offer contracts for renewable generation for use by Florida Power & Light Co., Duke Energy Florida, Tampa Electric Co. and Gulf Power Co. The standardized contracts are expected to facilitate and expedite access to grids by renewable energy providers by cutting down on the negotiation process. The standardized contracts set forth prices and other terms and conditions which renewable generating facilities can accept without negotiation. In addition, the Florida PSC approved "negotiated power contracts for new renewable generators and approved an expanded net metering and interconnection rule to include all renewable energy technologies".
