SolarCity chief: California net metering decision part of new energy paradigm
(Source: PVTECH, 2016-01-30)
California’s decision to continue its net metering programme
has been hailed as part of the ongoing shift in the world’s
attitude to energy by senior solar industry figures.
The state’s Public Utilities Commission voted three votes to
two in favour of extending the programme. Net metering customers
have secured a further three years of being compensated for their
excess power at the retail rate of electricity.
SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive said the decision gave the industry the
opportunity to demonstrate distributed energy’s benefits to
the grid and all ratepayers, solar and otherwise, while cutting
emissions and creating jobs.
