Net metering was the topic at last week's Florida Bar program, sponsored by the Administrative Law Section and the Environmental and Land Use Section. Autumn Proudlove of the NC Clean Energy Technology Center described the various state approaches. She said there are 2.7 million net metering customers in the U.S. There is the concern about cost shifting to the remaining ratepayers; and there is the opposite concern about benefits not being fully accounted for. There are efforts to become more granular in solar valuation. 27 states are looking at changes to net metering. Some are considering changes to the credit rate. California is considering time-of-use rates. Vermont is looking at a credit rate adjuster. Connecticut, Idaho, and New Hampshire are undertaking studies on net metering.
