Thanks to an organized effort, H.4185 has been tabled for now. The people have spoken and the legislature listened! Thank you for signing the letter for MA Advocates for Solar Growth and calling and emailing your legislators!
On July 31, there was an amendment on S2214 which raised the Net Metering cap 1% in Private and 2% in Public sectors. This will allow the backlog of solar projects to move forward at least until the end of the year.
The Amendment also sets up a 17 member commission to convene on October 1, 2014 and report to the legislature on March 31, 2015 on a study on solar PV in the Commonwealth. Hopefully this commission will now be focused on keeping the Commonwealth moving towards an equitable and democratic solution for all.
Thank your legislator representative and senator.
Thank you again and we’ll keep you updated since the process is now openly evaluated.
