IREC: Where Are The Best And Worst Shared Renewables Programs?
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
A national scorecard released by the nonprofit Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) grades states’ shared renewable energy programs – e.g., community solar and net metering – with Minnesota and New York coming out on top.
IREC says its National Shared Renewables Scorecard uses specific criteria to evaluate how each program stacks up against national best practices and to one another. This includes bill credit valuation, project siting requirements, interconnection procedures, low- to moderate-income customer participation, subscription portability and transferability, third-party ownership and management, and data tracking and reporting.
