Missouri PSC Amends Net Metering and Interconnection Rules

MISSOURI –On October 30, the Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) amended its existing net metering and interconnection rules, establishing guidelines for customers of investor-owned electric utilities who have the ability to generate renewable energy (see Docket # EX-2008-0280). These rules implement provisions of the Net Metering and Easy Connection Act which was part of Senate Bill 54. Under the amended rules adopted by the PSC, Missouri investor-owned electric utilities are required to permit qualified interconnection to customers with systems up to 100 kilowatts in capacity who generate electricity using wind, solar-thermal, hydroelectric, photovoltaics and fuel cell resources. There was only one major departure from the originally proposed rules. The order kept the liability insurance requirement at $100,000 for systems of 10 kW or less but increased the insurance requirement to $1,000,000 for systems over 10 kW.
