A Ratepayer Focused Strategy for Distributed Solar in Maine

Research or Whitepaper
This white paper offers a framework for sustainable growth in Maine’s distributed solar energy sector that maximizes and fairly allocates benefits for all ratepayers. This approach builds on the Public Utilities Commission’s recent “value of solar” study as well as lessons learned from other states. The policy proposed is specifically tailored to the state of Maine and offers innovative program design features intended to capitalize on the latest technological advances in the solar industry. While designed to present a coherent and holistic policy framework for state-wide adoption, this whitepaper is also intended to solicit stakeholder feedback.
