In the truest sense, doing net-metering projects and allowing businesses and homes to reduce their energy cost make the most sense and bring the most value back to the community. Creating lower energy costs allow for business to be more competitive, stable, and keep jobs intact. Jobs pay taxes, jobs purchase commodities, food, clothing, appliances, houses, etc., and flow money back into the economy. Residential solar increases the value of the property and allows for property owner to have more spending, allowing more money to flow as well.
Master plan for Brownfield’s and Landfills also makes sense with bonus S-REC credit amounts due to the higher cost of constructing these projects. We in the industry are still unsure if these particular projects can get done in any great number. There are many hurdles that have to be overcome, environmental regulatory, etc.
