A Final Push

Let’s finish strong! Help us empower you and your community through distributed energy production while new solar owners can still qualify for net-metering!

The sun is setting on net-metering and the time to install is 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.

FAQ

I own a home or business, but I’m not sure solar is right for me. Now what?No stress. There are a lot of factors to consider when installing solar, and we’re here to help you make an informed decision. Join one of our workshops!

I get my energy from a REMC. Does net-metering impact me?
Actually, it doesn’t! Net-metering is only relevant to people in areas served by investor-owned utilities (think Duke and Centerpoint) but that doesn’t mean solar isn’t a good fit for you too! Join a workshop and find out more.

I’m not a homeowner, but I’m intrigued by solar!

There’s a lot of advocacy and educate left to do, especially right now. We don’t want Hoosier to miss their chance to benefit from net-metering. Even if you don’t own a building to install solar on, I’m sure you know someone who does. Talk to them and have them talk to us!
