In a March 31, 2011 notice the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities noted the continued need for developing a system that provides an assurance of eligibility for proposed non-governmental net metering facilities. The aggregate capacity for non-government facilities may not exceed 1% of a distribution company’s highest historical peak load. On March 23, the DPU held a technical conference to discuss proposed straw proposals related to developing a system that provides an assurance of eligibility for proposed net metering facilities. At this conference participants discussed possible criteria for providing an assurance of eligibility for proposed net metering facilities. In view of the discussion, participants stated they would like an opportunity to revise their straw proposals. Accordingly, the DPU invites participants to file, by April 15, 2011, revised straw proposals for a net metering queue for proposed net metering facilities. To the extent feasible, the DPU is asking participants to work together and file a single straw proposal per stakeholder group.
