Solar Power & Net Metering

Solar Power & Net Metering

The growth of solar power energy around the seacoast has been significant.  Solar power companies have procured big gains with mainstreaming solar energy for home owners.  The state has recognized the impact of the solar industry on New Hampshire home owners and addressed it with the following law.

“HB 116/Chapter Law 31: This new law has increased the state cap on net metering from 50 MW to 100 MW.  The solar industry had been stymied in the state when utilities hit the 50 MW cap.  The new law also requires the Pacific Utilities Commission to examine the current rate structure and set a new tariff for solar net metering.”

In short, the new law will allow home owners to sell back more power to the utility company.  Good deal for solar power home owners!
