Missouri Utilities Press For Net Metering Changes
By: Phil Carroll, VP, P.E.
As more and more utility customers opt for renewables and other forms of self-generation, utilities are faced with a challenge: Most of these utilities are required to purchase back excess energy from these customers at retail prices. This, of course, ends up being unfair to the utilities, which, in order to maintain profitability, need to either generate their own power or purchase it at wholesale prices, so they will have funds available for system maintenance, etc. It also ends up being unfair to customers who do not self-generate, because they are forced to pay higher prices for their power so that the utilities will have the necessary funds for system maintenance.
