Mississippi Continues to struggle with net metering policy

News Article
The Mississippi Public Service Commission has extended the comment period regarding proposed net metering rules, and it is unclear when a vote will be taken, the Associated Press reports. Mississippi is one of five states with no net metering policy, and has been struggling with the issue since 2011. A proposed rule would cap net metering participation at 3%, though utilities want a more stringent limit; a study completed last year showed the state's residents would benefit under almost any net metering scenario.
