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

  • Remove system size limitations to allow customers to meet all on-site energy need Expand net metering to all utilities (i.e., munis and co-ops)

notes

During 2014 Kansas enacted legislation making several significant revisions to its net metering law, reducing its score when compared to 2013 grading. Most significantly, the state lost 1.5 points (going from 0 to -1.5) in the rollover category. The new law limits monthly rollover of net excess generation (NEG) at the retail rate to systems placed in service prior to July 1, 2014, and provides that all other customers are only permitted roll over NEG at an avoided cost rate. Customers that meet the July 1, 2014 deadline will transition to the avoided cost crediting system after January 1, 2030. The state also lost 0.5 points in the system size limit category (from +1 to +0.5) for reducing the largest system size eligible to net metering from 200 kW to 100 kW (except 150 kW for schools).
