Solar+Storage in Net Metering Programs

Thursday, September 13, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

Increasingly, solar customers are installing energy storage behind the meter, and solar companies are offering solar+storage products. The addition of storage behind customer meters can require new rules and guidelines to accompany net metering regimes that were not designed with solar+storage in mind.

This webinar examined lessons learned in California and Massachusetts, and will address questions such as: How to protect the integrity of net metering crediting, without imposing undue restrictions or cost burdens on customers? What rules are needed to allow storage to charge from and/or export to the grid? Who owns solar and energy storage capacity rights? And, can solar+storage customers maximize behind-the-meter benefits while participating in net metering programs?
