Community solar offers a unique opportunity for recovery in a Covid-racked economy, but needs to go beyond the contained role it has traditionally held in the American energy landscape.
It’s been a busy two months since Joe Biden became president. Here are highlights of key initiatives on the energy and cleantech fronts.
House Bill 1787 would change the state’s net metering so that solar customers would lose roughly two-thirds of their current benefit.
Duke along with community and environmental groups find themselves as unlikely allies as state officials deem a 5 MW installation to be expensive and unnecessary.
SB 84 would establish a 100 MW community solar program and also include a 30% annual capacity carve-out for low-income customers and related service organizations.
HOAs could still complain about some things related to solar, but could no longer ban them outright.
In an attempt to reduce installation time and cost, S.B.617 would allow for remote inspections and approvals of residential solar and solar-plus-storage systems in jurisdictions with over 10,000 residents.
HB 539 would require customers using solar panels to pay a fee and adds a grid access fee for customers who sell generated energy back to their utility.
The community solar program powers entire communities with renewable power and passes along guaranteed bill savings. But there’s a novel twist to it.
