Electric's Net Meter Policy Update is Under Consideration
Roseville Electric Utility will be presenting a proposal to update the utility’s net metering policy to the City Council later this summer.
The proposal will affect customers who install solar after October 2018. The proposal has been presented at several community meetings held earlier this year. The Public Utilities Commission reviewed and voted to support the proposal.
We are tentatively scheduled to present the proposal to City Council on Sept. 6.
To learn more, please view the May 23 Public Utilities Commission Meeting presentation.
Roseville Electric Utility was recognized in March as being among the safest community-owned utilities in the northwest. Roseville Electric Utility was ranked 3rd behind Pend Oreille Public Utility District in Washington and Homer Electric Association in Alaska.
“Safety is paramount at Roseville Electric Utility,” said Utility Director Michelle Bertolino. “Our low injury rate demonstrates our employees are committed to working safely. Creating and maintaining a safe work environment goes hand in hand with providing highly reliability energy.”
The City of Roseville is ranked in the Top Ten for solar.
The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) places Roseville Electric Utility 9th nationally for having the most solar per customer in 2016. Roseville Electric Utility is the only community-owned electric power provider in the Sacramento region to be recognized by SEPA. This is the third time in the past decade that the City of Roseville has been recognized by SEPA.
A handful of Roseville utility customers have reported receiving calls from someone claiming that they were from Roseville Electric Utility and that they were on their way to disconnect the customer's electricity due to a late payment. The caller demanded payment in the form of cash gift cards to keep the power on. This is a scam!
