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

On May 29, 2009, the South Dakota PUC issued an order approving their proposed South Dakota Small Generation Interconnection Rules. The rules specify interconnection procedures, in four tiers, for systems up to 10 MW. These rules were modeled from Illinois Small Generator Interconnection Rules. System owners are generally responsible for all interconnection expenses and utilities are authorized to require the use of an external disconnect switch. Limited interconnection to area networks is permitted. General liability insurance is required and for all systems other than residential generators up to 10 kW in capacity and the customer must include the utility as an _additional insured.” Net metering is not available in South Dakota.
