Chapter 366 of the Florida Statutes governs the operation of public utilities, and includes a section pertaining to cogeneration and small power production (366.051). This section establishes the state's support for incorporating cogenerators and small power producers into the grid, and directs the Public Service Commission to establish regulations and guidelines pertaining to the sale of electricity from these generators to electric utilities. Public utility power purchasing rates must be equal to the purchasing utility's full avoided costs.
