Rule Details

Rule Number: 13P028
Title: Regulations Pertaining to the Construction and Operation of Net Metering Systems
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Public Service Board
Legal Authority: 30 V.S.A. § 219a
Summary: This is an amendment to the existing rule governing the net metering process which is in turn based upon the statutory provisions of 30 V.S.A. Section 219a. The amendment incorporates the recent legislative changes made to 30 V.S.A. Section 219a. Specifically, these changes include an increase to the permitted capacity of systems, changes to the billing practice for group systems, increases the utility net metered capacity limit, and establishes a registration process for smaller systems.
Persons Affected: The existing rule directly affects electric utilities engaged in the operation of any electric transmission or distribution system, and companies engaged in the sale and installation of net metering systems. It also directly affects consumers of electricity who install net metering systems in the State of Vermont. The proposed amended rule will not change the entities affected by the existing rule.
Economic Impact: Generally, the existing rule and the amendments to the rule significantly reduce the costs for all involved in the net metering process by establishing simplified procedures for application for and issuance of certificates of public good pursuant to 30 V.S.A § 248, and by establishing technical specifications for interconnection that eliminate the need for individual interconnection agreements between the host utility and the net metering customer. The proposed amendments to the rule should have a minimal economic impact.
