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.
