AAEA Statement on Net-Metering Order Released This Afternoon

“The state’s solar business leaders have created careers, produced local community investment, and generated energy savings across Arkansas. Throughout this proceeding, AAEA has argued that distributed solar generation is a customer-financed investment that is a net benefit for utility systems and benefits all ratepayers. AAEA is reviewing the Commission’s order to ensure new rules align with the economic benefits provided by solar technologies, so that our solar sector can continue to help power Arkansas’s economy.” – Katie Niebaum, executive director, Arkansas Advanced Energy Association

Read the final order in Docket No. 16-027-R, “IN THE MATTER OF NET METERING AND THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ACT 827 OF 2015.”
