Coalition asks Court to stop Clean Power Plan regulations; California PUC to vote on new rules for net energy metering


POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that said FERC acted within its authority to set rates for demand response payments, a group of 25 states asked the Court to stop the new regulations from taking effect until their legal challenges have been resolved. Texas and West Virginia led the states to ask Chief Justice John Roberts to bar the EPA from enforcing the Clean Power Plan. It is now up to Roberts to either review the application independently or refer it to the court.
  • The California Public Utilities Commission will vote on Thursday on new rules for “net energy metering,” the system that pays solar homeowners for their extra power. Net metering has become an incentive for California homeowners considering placing solar panels on their rooftops; however, the state’s utility companies believe the existing system is unfair to non-solar companies.
