The Massachusetts DPU issued a net metering order promulgating legislation that revised the state’s net metering law. This order adopts three significant changes made under Chapter 359 of the Acts of 2010. First, the order specifies there will be two aggregate participation caps — one cap reserved for municipalities and other governmental entities, and another cap for all other net metering facilities. Secondly, it establishes a definition for government or municipal net metering facility. Third, the order sets the maximum amount of net metering generating capacity eligible for net metering by a municipality or other governmental entity at 10 megawatts (“MW”).
