Gov. Chris Sununu has unveiled a net metering bill that will help cities and towns across the state. Unlike bills vetoed during the past two years that would have resulted in substantial cost shifting, the governor’s new plan is exactly how net metering should be done.
The focus of the governor’s plan is to “right size” net metering facilities. The fundamental principle of net metering has always been to use what you generate. This bill requires cities and towns to consume 100% of what they generate on their system. This ensures that no one gets a free lunch. The bill doesn’t pick winners and losers, nor does it favor any specific technology.
