    Good question. I suspect the answer involves more complexity and more regulatory hassle than one would think. There are existing models out there which have been deployed in other states - that’s probably a good place to start.

    I’m interested here in Tampa Bay.

    You start by voting the Florida Legislature out of office. As I understand it, it is against Florida law to do this. Only utilities can buy or sell electricity. That's what makes them a monopoly.
