Which national policy will break oil addiction, strengthen national security and revive the economy, FEED IN TARIFFS or SOLAR RECS?,

The Feed In Tariff policy/business model, used in Germany to thrust its wind/solar industries, induces utilities to accept solar/wind netmetering schemes because the utilities make as much profit as the homeowner. I understand that the SOLAR REC policy/business model that many US states have adopted and that liberals in Congress promote, does not allow the institutionalized utilities to thrive. Consequently, they mobilize to stop wind/solar development. What do you know?

Small operators dislike RECS because they tend the to favor the large installers who have access to capital funding and can aggregate RECS on a large scale. The US needs a national RPS (Renewable Portfolio Standard) as a starting point. Check this article out for a more detailed discussion on US RECS in the solar industry.
