Net Metering for Renewable Energy Resources
On December 3, 2015, the Mississippi Public Service Commission issued a final order in Docket No. 2011-AD-2, adopting its Mississippi Renewable Energy Net Metering Rule and Distributed Generation Interconnection Rule. Generally, these rules set out what is required for Entergy Mississippi, Inc. customers to install and interconnect a distributed generation system (for example, rooftop solar) and participate in net metering.
We believe our customers should have the choice to self-generate electricity for their own use, have the ability to provide excess energy to the distribution grid and be credited for that on their electric bill. The recently adopted net metering rule provides a new framework for us to provide this option to our customers. For a copy of the MPSC’s final order, click here.
