Group Net Metering
With the enactment Senate Bill 98, New Hampshire established group net metering, also known as virtual net metering. This law (RSA 362-A:9, XIV) permits net-metered renewable energy facilities, known as hosts, to share the proceeds from surplus electricity generation with other electric utility account holders, known as group members. Group members do not have net metered renewable energy facilities and do not have to make any changes to their existing electric service.
SB98 charged the Public Utilities Commission with developing administrative rules to govern the group net metering law. Following a process that involved stakeholder input, the Commission developed interim group net metering rules that went into effect on January 2, 2014. Then through additional stakeholder input, the Commission developed final group net metering rules that went into effect on January 7, 2015.
Below please find application forms for group net metering as well as a copy of the final group net metering rules, Puc 902 and Puc 909.
