Eric Runge and Jennifer Galiette wrote an article, "Solar Energy Keeps Shining In Massachusetts – For Now," for Law360. The article provides analysis of the significant solar energy legislation signed into law this week by Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker. The legislation expands existing net metering caps but will reduce the value of net metering credits once Massachusetts reaches 1,600 megawatts of installed solar capacity. The legislation advances the governor's goals of reducing costs for new solar energy projects while continuing to provide incentive for continued solar development and establishing a long-term framework for sustainable solar development in the state. "This new Massachusetts energy law will continue for now the vibrant solar industry in Massachusetts, though some see a need for more comprehensive legal and regulatory changes in the not so distant future," Runge and Galiette wrote.
