Duke’s Net Metering Program Reopens For A Limited Time

From now until March 15th 2019, Duke’s net metering program is open!

Duke Reopens Net Metering Program

Duke Energy agreed to reopen the recently closed net metering program for renewable energy.  The net metering program, gives solar customers credit for every kilowatt at the same rate they pay from the electricity company. This one-to-one ratio makes solar energy competitive in the marketplace and gives customers a great ROI on their solar system.

Quote from Southern Current’s Director of Regulatory Affairs

“The (extension) speaks to the fact that we have a constructive dialogue underway,” says Hamilton Davis, director of regulatory affairs for Southern Current. “This is a temporary fix, but the hope is we can have legislation we can propose together early in 2019.”
