Using Market-Based Approaches to Set Roof Top Solar Feed in Tariff Contract Prices

In the past rooftop solar feed in tariffs have been set by governments, government bodies such as productivity commissions and sometimes power retailers.  These FIT's have ranged from obscenely profitable down to unfair rip-off's.
Governments have also tried to use FIT price as a crude mechanism for controlling the rate of installation.  The result has been a rooftop solar business that has gone through a number of boom/bust cycles.
