Public Services Commission Comment Deadline on SB 100 Extended.
PCS deadline to submit comments is midnight, October 15, 2019.
A public hearing will be held at the PSC offices on November 13th at 9:00 am. The PSC is located at 211 Sower Boulevard, Frankfort, KY.
As you may know, a bill passed last year that will allow each individual Kentucky utility to request the PSC reduce the rate solar customers receive for sending power to the grid. These requests can be made starting on January 1, 2020. Typical rate cases take at least 180 days for a decision. Until that point, current net metering arrangements stay in place.
Customers with solar systems installed prior to the implementation of new utility rates will be grandfathered in for 25 years of the current net metering system.
The Kentucky Public Service Commission, which regulates the state’s largest utilities, will determine how homegrown solar energy is valued. Please take a few minutes to contact the Public Service Commission to let them know that homes, churches, and small businesses should receive fair credit for their solar power.
It’s easy! Just click here for a sample letter and instructions on how to send your message to the PSC. Please personalize the beginning of the letter to reflect why you chose solar and how it benefits your family, business, or church.
Your voice matters. Together, we can help preserve our environment and build Kentucky’s economy.
