There are important changes coming to the way New York Utilities credit the production of solar power to a customer’s electric bill. What was known as net metering has ended in NY as of 3/9/2017. Net metering allows solar customers to produce more solar power than they could instantaneously use and push the excess power onto the grid and receive a full KWH credit. The amount being credited for excess power is changing.
If you are thinking of purchasing solar in the next 12 months, now is the time! Utilities have been fighting net metering for years and it appears they are making in-roads in this battle.
However, the NY Public Services Commission has given a temporary window for those to get in at the “old” net metering rates. There has never been a better time in NY to purchase solar than now. Don’t look back a year from now and wish you were receiving the “old” net meter rate. Let me assure you, the “old” rate is good!
