EIA forecasts 422 MW of new hydroelectric capacity installed; Maine vetoed net metering bill


POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • The EIA forecasts that there will be 1,083 MW of hydroelectric capacity installed between 2015 and 2019. Of this, 422 MW will be on dams that did not previously have electric generating units, also known as non-powered dams.
  • Maine’s governor vetoed a bill that would revise the state’s net metering policy and boost solar energy. The legislation would have removed the state’s current retail rate net metering program and replaced it with a program that would require regulated utilities to purchase and aggregate solar generation from private solar owners and utility-scale developers. Utilities would then bid the generation into the region’s electricity markets.
