TWEETS

Full retail credit with no subtractions. Customers protected from fees and additional charges. Rules actively encourage use of DG.

A

Generally good net metering policies with full retail credit, but there could be certain fees or costs that detract from full retail equivalent value. There may be some obstacles to net metering.

B

Adequate net metering rules, but there could be some significant fees or other obstacles that undercut the value or make the process of net metering more difficult.

C

Poor net metering policies with substantial charges or other hindrances. Many customers will forgo an opportunity to install DG because net metering rules subtract substantial economic value.

D

Net metering policies that deter customer-sited DG.

Eligible Renewable/Other Technologies

Solar Thermal Electric, Photovoltaics, Wind, Biomass, Hydroelectric, Geothermal Electric, CHP/Cogeneration, Hydrogen, Small Hydroelectric, Tidal Energy, Wave Energy, Ocean Thermal

Applicable Sectors

Commercial, Industrial, Residential, Nonprofit, Schools, Local Government, State Government, Tribal Government, Fed. Government, Agricultural, Institutional

Applicable Utilities

Investor-owned utilities

System Capacity Limit

2 MW

Aggregate Capacity Limit

No limit specified

Net Excess Generation

Credited to customer's next bill at retail rate; excess reconciled annually at avoided-cost rate

REC Ownership

Customer owns RECs

Meter Aggregation

Not allowed

recommendations

  • Improve rollover and safe harbor provisions

notes

The interconnection and net metering standards adopted by the Florida Public Service Commission in March 2008 apply only to investor-owned utilities. The standards include three breakpoints of interconnection, but limit the capacity of individual interconnected and net-metered systems to 2 MW. Monthly NEG is credited to the customer’s next bill at the utility’s retail rate; at the end of the year, annual excess generation is credited at the avoided-cost rate. Customers retain all RECs.Systems over 10 kW are subject to additional interconnection application fees, studies and insurance requirements, as well as a required external disconnect switch. The standards include a standard form agreement. Legislation enacted in July 2008 required municipal utilities and electric co-ops to "develop a standardized interconnection agreement and net metering program for customer-owned renewable generation" by July 1, 2009. The law did not provide clear standards or definitions for municipal utilities and electric co-ops and the PSC does not maintain authority over these utilities
