Senate approves bill to cap net metering

The Republican-led Senate approved a bill that will lift the state-set cap on net metering, which allows people to sell their excess solar power back to utilities. 

Following increased solar development, several utilities have hit the current 50 megawatt net metering cap.

The bill would double that to 100 megawatts, and it would give the state Public Utilities Commission 10 months to evaluate net metering rates and set new ones, if deemed necessary.
