Colorado PUC Issues Recommended Decision on NM/IC order; Governor Signs Renewable Energy/NM Legislation

COLORADO – On April 20th, an Administrative Law Judge for the Colorado PUC released a recommended decision modifying rules related to the state’s Renewable Energy Standard (RES). If ruled upon by the Commission, these rules would move Colorado further towards best practices in net metering and interconnection. These rules:

1. Clarify that third-party ownership is allowed for smaller systems (<10kW) and affirm that third-party developers are not public utilities

2. Remove the system size cap for net metering and require systems to be sized at or below 120% of the customer’s average annual electricity consumption

3. Relax liability insurance requirements for systems 10 kW
