SEIA Applauds Baker Administration for Leadership on Raising Near-Term Net Metering Caps in Massachusetts; Voices Concern Over Longer-Term Framework
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker today filed a bill that will address the need to raise the net metering caps in the Commonwealth. The Governor’s action is an important step in the legislative process. It recognizes both the popularity of solar in the state and its importance to the economy, and it advances the Governor’s commitment to reaching and exceeding 1,600 megawatts (MW) of solar in Massachusetts.
In a key decision that will make clean energy more affordable and accessible to even more people across the state, the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) has announced new rules allowing for community net metering (CNM). The PSC’s innovative Shared Renewables Program, which will be launched later this year, is expected to especially benefit low and moderate-income families in New York.

If approved and signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie, bipartisan legislation approved this week by the New Jersey Legislature will help to keep New Jersey solar installations on track for 2015. The state is projected to add nearly 300 megawatts (MW) of new installed solar capacity, according to the recently released U.S. Solar Market Insight Report compiled by GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
With its new, forward-looking Solar Power Free Market Financing Act set to become law on July 1, Georgia is expected to have its best year ever for new solar installations in 2015, according to the recently released U.S. Solar Market Insight Report compiled by GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Despite a strong first quarter, industry leaders are warning that future solar growth in Massachusetts is being jeopardized because net energy metering (NEM) caps have been reached in many areas of the state. These caps have been hit because of the exploding popularity of solar – evidenced by a 150 percent increase in new solar capacity in the first quarter of 2015, compared to the same quarter a year ago.
