U.S Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) dismisses a petition to federalize solar net metering

The U.S Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) dismissed a controversial petition to end state and local jurisdiction over net metering programs.

The petition was brought by the New England Ratepayers Association (NERA) and drew significant bipartisan pushback from around the country.

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) applauded the ruling, with president and CEO Abigail Ross Hopper referring to the petition as “flawed”, while the head of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), Gregory Wetstone, commented that it is a “commonsense decision”.
