Net Metering in Retail Choice States

  1. 1.                              
  2. 2.           14 States plus D.C. allow retail choice 2
  3. 3.           • Entails breaking up vertically-integrated companies into distribution utilities and retail suppliers • Distribution utilities (wires and lines), retail suppliers (energy) • States have different configurations of these relationships 3
  4. 4.         Generate a firmer idea for how net metering functions in states with retail choice, including problems that have arisen and their solutions. 4
  5. 5.       •  Utility Definition(s) –  Ex. Delaware: Statute: PSC, municipal utilities and cooperatives must "Ensure that electric suppliers provide net-metered customers electric service at nondiscriminatory rates..." Statute: "Electric supplier" means a person or entity certified by the Commission that sells electricity to retail electric customers utilizing the transmission and/or distribution facilities of a nonaffiliated electric utility. •  Net Metering Required for Competitive Suppliers? •  Separate Competitive Supplier Rate Option 5
  6. 6. • Permitted Meter Configuration • Competitive Billing Configuration - Ex. New Jersey: Supplier Option. Customer apparently may request to be billed directly by the supplier. • Other Related Definitions • Rollover Provisions • Charges - Ex. Connecticut: A customer…with a nameplate capacity of more than ten kilowatts of electricity...shall be assessed for the competitive transition assessment and the systems benefits charge, based on the amount of electricity consumed by the customer…without netting any electricity produced by the customer. 6
