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.

recommendations

  • The state should adopt IREC's model rules

notes

Idaho does not have a statewide net-metering policy. However, the state's three investor-owned utilities -- Avista Utilities, Idaho Power and Rocky Mountain Power -- have each developed a net-metering tariff that has been approved by the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (PUC). FERC standards generally apply to all transmission-level interconnection; state standards generally apply to distribution-level interconnection
