The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) recently issued a study entitled “Putting the Potential Rate Impacts of Distributed Solar into Context,” authored by Galen Barbose. The LBNL study estimates the potential rate impact of distributed solar on national average retail electricity prices, and importantly, compares that impact to the potential impact of other rate drivers such as natural gas prices, renewable portfolio standards, and utility capital expenditures.1 This brief applies a similar style analysis as used by LBNL to regional

This initial investigation in the value of photovoltaic (PV) power generation for New York focuses on the value to utilities. Specifically, the report asks whether PV netmetering constitutes a loss to the utilities which would negatively affect their rate payers. The value of customer-sited PV generation to a utility includes generation-level energy and capacity, as well as environmental compliance benefits, fuel price hedge protection, and location specific-transmission and distribution (T&D) and loss savings benefits.
