Utah Customer Generation

Utah net metering update

On Sept. 29, 2017, the Public Service Commission of Utah approved a settlement agreement between several stakeholders related to residential customer generation.

The settlement caps the current net metering program November 15, 2017, while allowing current net metering customers to stay on the original program until December 31, 2035. Please note that all applications must be received by the close of business on Nov. 14, 2017 to be admitted to the ‘grandfathered’ original net metering program.

November 15, 2017 marks the beginning of a 'transition program' for customers with new generation systems.

During the transition period, customers will receive ‘export credits’ for energy they export back to the grid. Usage and export credits will be measured in 15-minute intervals.

The settlement agreement included a diverse group of interested parties, including residential solar companies, solar generation advocacy groups, environmental advocacy groups, and government and non-government organizations. The following organizations joined the settlement agreement:

Rocky Mountain Power
Utah Office of Consumer Services
Utah Division of Public Utilities
Vivint Solar
Auric Solar, LLC
HEAL Utah
Intermountain Wind and Solar, LLC
Legend Solar, LLC
Utah Solar Energy Association
Salt Lake City Corporation
Utah Clean Energy
Summit County
Utah Citizens Advocating Renewable Energy
Park City Municipal Corporation
