Maine PUC Adopts Draft Rules for Shared-System Net Metering

On January 8, the Maine Public Utilities Commission provisionally adopted draft rules that would amend the current net energy billing rule to allow net billing for customers who share in the ownership of an eligible renewable facility with a capacity of 500 kW or less (PUC Easy Web, Case 2008-410). The rules also include an expanded facility capacity limit up to 500 kW for individual net billing customers. The provisional rules remove the facility vicinity requirement and allow for the net billing of accounts across a utility’s service territory. In most other respects, the basic structure of the current rules has been incorporated in the provisional net billing rules, particularly the annualized kilowatt-hour credit treatment of excess generation.
