PUCO Hears Arguments re. Revised Net Metering Rules

Revised net metering rules were adopted by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) in its November 8, 2017 order. On January 10, 2018, the PUCO heard oral arguments from interested parties regarding the rules.

Issues of interest to manufacturers that were raised include: 1) the form and amount of compensation available to net metering customers for excess generation; 2) the availability of net metering tariffs to shopping customers, and; 3) the rules governing which facilities qualify for net metering.

Here is a good summary of the arguments from Kim Bojko of Carpenter Lipps & Leland, OMA’s energy counsel.

The PUCO will take the oral arguments into consideration when rendering its decision adopting final net metering rules. 1/18/2018
