    ...[T]en of the top distributed solar policy trends of 2020…[were] Utilities proposing additional fees based on DG system capacity…States adopting unique net metering successor policies…States facing challenges with low-income community solar participation…Net metering successor tariffs being considered on a utility by utility basis……States and utilities considering time-of-use crediting for net metering customers…Utilities continuing to propose fewer and smaller residential fixed charge increases…

    ...Interest growing in minimum bills as a DG rate design element…States considering expansion of existing community solar programs…Strong movement away from mandatory residential demand charges; and…States establishing timelines for net metering successor transitions…A total of 257 state and utility level distributed solar policy and rate changes were proposed, pending, or decided in 2020…In Q4 2020, 39 states and D.C. took some type of action on distributed solar policy or rate design.
