The sun is setting on net-metering unless we act now!
Thank you for finding us – and just in time too! Solarize Indiana is a volunteer-led non-profit working to help Hoosiers understand the benefits of rooftop solar and guide them through the process of installing. In 2017, however, SEA 309 was signed into law and began the phase-out of net-metering. With net-metering, the solar owner is compensated for the energy they produce as the same rate that the energy company charges. Seems fair right? But with SEA 309, anyone who installs solar after June 2022 isn’t eligible and will be compensated at only 1/4-1/3 of the retail rate for the energy they produce. This may sound minor, but it’s a major blow to the affordability of rooftop solar.
Saving Solar in the 2022 General Assembly
Current policy dooms net-metering to end in June, but there are a few bills in the Indiana House & Senate that can save it! The most impactful thing we can do right now is to contact our legislators and committee chairs Eric Koch and Ed Soliday to let them know that we want these bills to be heard and supported.
