As the solar industry has grown in recent years, net metering has rapidly become one of the most important energy policy issues addressed at the state level. This event will examine the current regulatory framework and consider the impact of increased solar deployment on the electric utility business model, with a particular focus on state net metering policies and politics. Inaugural Fellow David Sandalow will moderate the discussion.
