The Baker administration says Massachusetts is poised to hit its solar energy production target, which would lower or eliminate the need to provide incentives, such as net-metering, which allows utility customers to receive the retail rate for solar power that's sold back to the grid. In a recent State House News Service report, Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton told lawmakers he opposes raising the cap on net-metering without a "sustainable" framework that lowers costs for ratepayers. Beaton said he wants to "wean down incentives." But should the state raise the cap to help the solar energy installation industry grow? Please vote and comment.
Should Massachusetts lift its net-metering cap to help encourage wider adoption of solar energy?
