Hey, hey it’s Thursday and you’re reading the pv magazine morning brief. Today we’re taking a look at corporate renewable procurement reaching 22% of deals in 2018, utility leaders worldwide predicting a movement off-grid, Energy Toolbase choosing AMS for energy storage platform implementation and everything else that matters today. Let’s roll!
Americans for Prosperity, a Koch funded group, noted that their work pushed New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu to veto a net metering expansion for 1 to 5 MW projects, even as the Governor said it would benefit the state.
The upstream technology company plans to sell silicon carbide for applications including advanced inverters for solar and battery storage, as part of a new emphasis on materials supply.
The bill to allow PV systems up to 5 MW in capacity to participate in net metering has been reported out of committee and will now go to a vote of the full House, it’s last stop before the desk of Governor Sununu.
SB 446 has passed the Senate and now heads the House for approval. The bill would allow systems up to 5 MW to participate in the state’s net metering program, with final rates to be set over the next three years.
The state’s Public Utility Commission froze the program on July 14, delaying processing until at least September and putting hundreds of applications on ice.
This quarter’s report on policies and rate design that affect distributed solar showed many of the same themes as previous reports, but also a glacial shift in approach.
The decision keeps generation and transmission portions of the net metering credits under 100 kW at 100%, but lowers distribution credit to 25% of its current retail value.
