SEIA Says New Guidebook on Net Metering Will Benefit Consumers

You are here

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A key new report offering a standardized approach to determining the benefits and costs of distributed generation (DG) was released today by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. (IREC). After reviewing the report, SEIA Sr. Vice President Carrie Cullen Hitt issued the following statement:

“Without question, distributed generation provides significant benefits to consumers nationwide. IREC’s guidebook offers critically important new tools for regulators, allowing them to make informed, effective decisions for their constituencies and ratepayers. Most importantly, SEIA is supportive of recommendations by IREC for a more standardized and thorough approach for valuing DG. This is something sorely needed and long overdue.”
