Roseville Solar 2.0 Net Energy Metering Presentation - Summary


Date:  5/18/2017 (RCONA Meeting) and 6/12/2017 Public Workshop at Mahany Meeting Rooms  


Philip MacAvoy and team members from Roseville Electric presented proposed solar changes that would begin in 2018 to reduce “buy-back rates” in compliance with state regulations. 

Roseville Electric expects to meet the state’s mandate for clean energy levels in 2018 and will reach its 5% Cap by Oct. 2018.  At that point, new meters will have been installed to monitor both input and output of energy -- measure the amount of excess going onto the Roseville grid. 


Roseville Electric currently compensates for energy received at 11 cents, but says the energy is actually only worth about 6 cents, and that solar homeowners are not paying their fair share of overall costs.  Those residents with systems installed before that date will be grandfathered in with their current rates for 20-years from their original connection/contract date.  So if your system started 10-years ago, then you have 10 years at the current rate remaining.  The new rate will drop to 5.9-cents and will change as rates change subject to state changes. 


Roseville Electric stated that 6% of Roseville residents have solar for their homes.  Solar systems average 22% of the year producing energy, and 78% of the time Roseville Electric provides the electricity.  Most home systems generate solar energy from 11:00 AM to peak at 7:00 PM; since the solar energy earned is not stored in most systems, you can take the most advantage of using your solar during the systems producing hours.
