    November 12, 2015 (North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center)

    “…[R]egulators or legislators in 27 states considered or enacted changes to their solar net metering policies or were undergoing a solar valuation or net metering study during Q3 [according to The 50 States of Solar: A Quarterly Look at America’s Fast-Evolving Distributed Solar Policy Conversation]…The report provides details on 91 instances in 42 states of proposed or decided regulatory and legislative state-level distributed solar policy changes during Q3 2015…Twenty-six utilities in 18 states had ongoing or decided rate cases in Q3 in which the utility proposed an increase fixed customer charge of at least 10%, a change to electric rates that can undermine the financial return of a solar PV system. In comparison, utilities in only two states are implementing a minimum bill for residential customers. The report finds that the average fixed charge increase requested in these 26 instances was 70%...The report also finds 14 utilities in 10 states had pending or decided proposals for adding new charges and costs on solar net metering customers…” click here for more
