Renewable Energy supporters are again asking the governor to make changes to the compensation structure for these projects.
Last year, the PSC switched to VDER, which stands for value of distributed energy resources and its a complicated formula that pays the owners of solar panels different amounts depending on when and where the panels produce electricity.
My next guests say that’s slowing down solar development because it creates financial uncertainty.
Instead, they want a return to net-metering, which gives panel owners credits for any energy they produce that goes to the public grid.
Explaining more is Anthony Sicari, the owner of the SunPower by New York State Solar Farm and Stephan Roundtree, of the New York Energy Democracy Alliance.
