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

Photovoltaics, Landfill Gas, Wind, Biomass, Hydroelectric, Geothermal Electric, Anaerobic Digestion, Small Hydroelectric

Applicable Sectors

Commercial, Industrial, Residential, Agricultural

Applicable Utilities

All utilities

System Capacity Limit

25 kW

Aggregate Capacity Limit

1% of utility's average monthly peak demand

Net Excess Generation

Credited to customer's next bill at avoided-cost rate; excess reconciled at end of annual period

REC Ownership

Customer owns RECs

Meter Aggregation

Not addressed

recommendations

  • Remove system size limitations to allow customers to meet all on-site energy needs Credit net excess generation at the customer’s retail rate with indefinite rollover Remove the aggregate capacity limit

notes

Net metering in Nebraska is limited by the extremely low cap (25 kW) on individual systems, and because excess kWh generated by a customer during a billing period are credited at the utilitys avoided-cost rate (as opposed to the utilitys retail rate) on subsequent bills. However, Nebraskas policy includes strong _safe harborî language and requires utilities to publish annually on their web sites various data related to customers participating in net metering.
