NEIA disappointed net metering caught in limbo

The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association is disappointed to hear that Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is preparing to use the Maritime Link to import power, while net metering remains in limbo.

This province is the only jurisdiction in the country that doesn’t allow net metering, which allows people to generate their own power through solar or wind energy and sell it back to the grid.

NEIA Executive Director Ted Lomond says the provincial government announced its intentions to introduce net metering back in 2007. He says it’s time to move.

He says in 2015 a framework to bring in net metering was announced, but to date, nothing has happened. He says it’s frustrating to be considering importing power, when residents and businesses can be producing their own energy.
