City Adopts Net Meter Policy for New Solar Customers

The Roseville City Council unanimously agreed to a new net meter policy for customers who install solar on their roof beginning in October 2018. The new program, Roseville Solar 2.0, changes the buyback rate for the over generation of solar power.

The proposal does not immediately affect existing solar customers. Customers who installed solar prior to October 2018 will be paid the retail buyback rate for over generation through at least 2028.

To learn more, please view the Sept. 6 City Council Meeting presentation.
