Net Metering Bills take on new meaning this week
We had some good news as well as some bad news this week on the Net Metering protection front. First the good news, HB 2001, the companion bill to SB 1, the first two bills introduced in the 2015 WV Legislative session, passed out of both bodies, clean and untouched except for the addition of the section on Net Metering as found in the AREPS law (that was 99% repealed), and was signed by the governor to be one of the first completed pieces of legislation. We were hoping that would be the end of the story. Not so fast. There are still two Net Metering (as amended) bills out there to watch (SB 1 and HB 2201) and negotiate and repair or kill. More

An ALEC bill SB 1 and HB 2001, the repeal of the Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio Act (in its entirety) aka AREP was the first two bills introduced and they have already been through committees in both chambers, first in the Senate EIM committee the second day of the session and also in the house Energy committee only a few minutes later on the same afternoon.
