Late Wednesday, CPS Energy announced its decision to delay the discussion on SunCredit, a proposal to replace its rooftop solar net metering program, for one year.
All solar installation applications the utility receives during that year will be grandfathered under the net metering program for life.
During the year, CPS Energy personnel will have quarterly meetings with local solar stakeholders to address the many issues that arose during the SunCredit controversy.
The working group’s goal will be to develop a program that fairly addresses the issue of integrating distributed generation of solar into CPS Energy’s grid and business model.
“Now the real work begins of choosing a group, setting an agenda, and conducting productive discussions,” said Lanny Sinkin, Executive Director of Solar San Antonio. “The ideal outcome would be developing creative solutions to a broad range of challenges facing the utility during this transition period."
