What is Happening with Net Metering in New Hampshire?
On May 2, 2015 Governor Hassan signed into law House Bill 1116, which doubled New Hampshire’s net metering cap from 50 MW to 100 MW. Pursuant to HB 1116, the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission initiated a proceeding to develop new alternative net metering tariffs and to determine how to limit net metering within each electric distribution utility’s service territory. The PUC will determine net metering reimbursement rates for residential and commercial net meter customers. The docket has been ongoing in front of the PUC since May, 2016. Originally an order was expected in March, 2017, but it has been pushed back to a target date of June 2, 2017. The docket (DE 16-576) is available here.
