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.

notes

In December 2015, the Public Utilities Commission approved new net metering tariffs. The new billing calculation described does not meet Freeing the Grid's definition of net metering, as energy exports are credited at the avoided cost rate. Effective January 1, 2016, these new tariffs apply to both existing and new net metering customers.
