Phase One VDER Tariff

On March 9, 2017, the NY Public Service Commission (PSC) issued an order on the Value of Distributed Energy Resources (VDER), creating a successor tariff to net energy metering (NEM). Where NEM simply credited the owner of a solar system with the retail value of a kilowatt-hour for each kilowatt-hour sent into the grid, VDER more accurately reflects the societal and environmental benefits of each system by tying compensation to a formula that includes such factors as the system’s location and the time the energy is generated.  Order on Net Energy Metering Transition, Phase One of Value of Distributed Energy Resources and Related Matters
