Advocates Say Net Metering Changes Could Slow Solar Growth In Ohio

"Recent rule changes in Ohio would not fully reward solar energy and other renewable resources for the flexibility they bring to the market, say advocates.

On November 8, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio released new net metering rules on how utilities compensate customers who supply their own excess generation to the grid.

Compared to rule changes adopted in 2014, the changes reduce the amount customers get, limit reimbursement to credits against future bills, and make a distinction between customers who stay with the utility and those that seek out an alternative supplier."
