Last week, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) announced that it had adopted amended net metering rules in Chapter 4901:1-10 of the Ohio Administrative Code in accordance with the State of Ohio's five-year rule review procedures. Net metering "allows electric utility customers who generate on-site power from renewable sources to offset their purchases from the utility, as well as receive a credit on their bill for electricity that flows back in the utility system, as long as the system is sized to meet the customer's requirements for electricity and the customer signs an agreement with the utility for interconnection service in order to protect the safety and reliability of the electric power system." The commission anticipates that this chapter will be filed with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) during spring 2014. To view the Commission Finding and Order and the rules, view case number 12-2050-EL-ORD.
