New Hampshire Formally Adopts Net Metering Modifications

NEW HAMPSHIRE – On July 17, 2009, the Public Utilities Commission adopted final rules for net metering, which were certified and effective on July 18.  The new rule, as discussed in previous Connecting to the Grid newsletters, raises the system cap to 100 kW, opens net metering up to all renewable and increases the participation cap to 1.0% of a utility’s annual peak energy demand.   The proposed rules also modify the corresponding interconnection terms slightly but the changes seem mostly superficial in nature.  The rules do, however, remove the previous requirement for a Utility External Disconnect Switch but allow customers to voluntarily install one if they so choose.
