PUCO Sets New Net Metering Rules

After conducting a workshop and receiving comments from a number of parties, including OMA Energy Group, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) issued an order adopting new net metering rules on November 8, 2017.

A net metering system is a generation facility that uses an appropriate fuel type, is located on the customer-generator’s premises, operates in parallel with the electric utility’s transmission and distribution facilities, and is intended primarily to offset part or all of the customer-generator’s requirements for electricity. Permissible fuel types for net metering are: solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas or hydropower.
