Massachusetts opens revenue stream to advance solar-plus-storage

The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) issued two orders on Friday, to specify net metering for solar-plus-storage facilities and the capacity ownership rights of such projects.

"Both of those clarifications were absolutely necessary," Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Commissioner Judith Judson said on a Feb. 4 call with reporters. DOER worked with the state Attorney General's office on the DPU docket to help utilities and developers compromise on how to deploy more energy storage without placing an undue burden on taxpayers.
