Maryland net metering expands its list of eligible hydro facilities

On April 12, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley signed Senate Bill 271 into law. This law specifies that certain types of hydro-electric generating facilities are eligible for net metering in the state.  Specifically, it defined and included “closed conduit hydro” into the mix of eligible net metering facilities.  This is a type of facility that generates electricity within existing piping (or limited adjacent piping) of a potable water supply system, owned by a municipality. The facility must be designed to produce less energy than is consumed by the water supply system.
