Description:

In June 2012, Resolution 5399 established net metering for all renewable energy systems up to 500kW and derogated previous net metering provisions (resolutions 2060 and 3028).

The new net metering procedures provided for monthly carryover of positive energy balances and that any remaining positive balance after a year, not to exceed 25% of the system capacity, would be compensated at the distribution company’s average power purchase price for the year.

Resolution 5399 also provides that renewable energy generators under 500kW scheme would not be subject to transmission losses regulations.

This record supersedes:Interconnection of Renewable Energy Systems Agreement- Net metering Resolution 3028 , Interconnection of Small Photovoltaic Systems Agreement- Net metering Resolution 2060
