Harold, I believe you are thinking of the March/April 2004 issue of IAEI news....which might be available on their web site www.IAEI.org
Otherwise, I would be very vary of information from "alternative power" resources, as well as equipment dealers/makers/installers. Too many times, the have little knowledge of, or respect for, electrical codes.
There is also the very real risk of such systems creating a hidden danger for PoCo personnel. Your PoCo has rules, I'm sure, that apply to adding such a service. In a small, but very real, way, you are adding another "generating station" to the grid.
As for "reverse metering," this is not yet nation-wide. That varies by state. Much information is available from Home Power Magazine www.homepower.com
but, again, take their information very carefully!
