Net metering has been a key driver in the adoption of residential and commercial PV, however, changes to net metering programs are being considered all across the US, and there will be wins, losses and new fees. These will potentially significantly impact the deployment of residential solar in the US. Announcements in key states California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii have already fundamentally changed the economics of solar PV.

In this Spark – Energy Insight The US Utility War Against Net Metering, FTI Intelligence looks at the threats and opportunities for solar PV from the changes in net metering in the US and concludes that the most disastrous potential trend is to make changes to net metering retroactive, thus encouraging potential customers to reconsider, potentially undermining growth in US solar PV.
