Energy Bills in MA Legislature — As August ends it is still unclear what energy bills will be considered by the State Legislature this Fall. It is important to keep contacting state officials and legislators about the Net Metering Cap. Before the Legislature recessed for August, Senator Rosenberg’s office reported that nothing could be done until this fall. It is still unclear if any energy bills will be considered this Fall. Meanwhile there is a cap on large solar developments and community solar in National Grid territory which includes 171 communities in Massachusetts. Continue calling legislators and Governor Baker asking them to lift the Net Metering cap (contacts for government officials).
