"Arizona Net-Metering Decision May Slow Solar Adoption"

"A decision by state regulators to end net metering for customers with rooftop solar panels will curtail demand for such systems in Arizona, industry officials say.

But the depth of that impact remains largely unknown and depends on further proceedings to set a new solar-energy “export rate” for each utility.

The Arizona Corporation Commission voted on Tuesday to scrap net metering — a process where customers are credited for excess solar-energy production at retail rates — in favor of a lower export rate, despite the objections of some solar advocates."
