On January 17, 2010, New Jersey Governor Corzine signed into law the Solar Energy Advancement and Fair Competition Act (A3520). This new law establishes new solar requirements in addition to removing the 2 MW cap for net-metered systems. The Board of Public Utilities will be convening a stakeholder proceeding to implement the new law. A public hearing has been scheduled for February 2, 2010, concerning the previously-issued rule proposal to remove the cap.
Comments on the proposal may be submitted at the public hearing on February 2nd, or through e-mail or written comments. The deadline for submittal of comments remains March 5, 2010.
