>> welcome to new hampshire's what would happen if your meter went backwards, you wouldn't be using as much energy and you'd be saving money. metering is a use of renewable energy source to use electricity and the use of flow in your home or business and the smart meter uses energy used and excess produced and the excess energy can be sold back for credit or payment. now, in new hampshire, net metering, new hampshire sets caps on metering at 50 mega watts done 17 years ago. now the new hampshire legislature this year is extending -- it has legislation that would extend the caps from 50 to 75 mega watts. solar companies want it lifted because it's slowing growth.

6:38 am
is out, flows back and forth over the meter and the times i'm using more and taking it off the grid and other times i'm using less and producing more and it's going out to the utility. >> you don't have much of a bill? >> i don't have much of a bill, but whatever bill i have gets once a month. if i've used more than i produce, i pay whatever kilowatt hours are on the bill. if i have a month where i produced more than i've used then you pay a flat rate charge to be connected to the utility. >> let's talk about the cap that new hampshire has in place, 50 mega watts, now legislation that would raise it to 75. why a cap? >> a cap goes back to really the fledging start of net metering 17 years ago. so there really wasn't is industry in place, there really wasn't something that technology and pricing allowed people to do and that's change over the time since then. and it's quite a vibrant
6:39 am
as well as states all around the country. >> and upping this will pass, increasing the cap in new hampshire? >> well, i would hope at a minimum it would pass and new hampshire has a very small number at about 1 1/2% of peak load. the states around us are at 10 to 15%. >> there are only a few states in the country that don't have neat neat-- net heat metering, currently they get the full retail rate at 14 cents a shower and that's a usual for utilities. whether or not it accounts a subsidy of the panel owners, with those cost being pushed on to the other consumers. that's an issue talked about every time this comes up. what say you? >> well, what you really see is

hours and the only times you get paid for any of your power is at the end of one year cycle and if you have any power in your bank, if you want to think of it that way, then you're getting the energy only rate, which for mine on the system, averaged 7 cents over the last three years. and they give you the option to roll it over or to get paid out if it's over 600 kilowatts. >> so, the subsidy idea is a misnomer? >> yes. >> ok. we're out of time. we could keep going on this, we're out of time, harold turner of the hl group in new hampshire and member of the council planks. we may get back to this before too long. >> i'm sure we will, thanks, fred. >> if you want to see and hear that again, go to wmur.com, click on news and click on economy. >> now, meteorologist josh judge with your storm watch 9 forecast. >> we're waking up with clear

electric meter in your house or business went backward? you wouldn't be using as much energy and saving money. it's something called net metering and here it is. net metering is the use of renewable energy source to generate electricity. in new hampshire primarily solar at this point. the use of a smart meter to record the electricity flow in your home or business, the smart meter measures energy use and excess produced and the excess can be sold back to the utility for credit or payment. now in new hampshire, net metering, new hampshire sets caps 50 mega watts, that was done 17 years ago. now the new hampshire legislature this year has legislation that would extend the caps from 50 to 75 mega watts. solar companies want the cap raised or eliminated. and the utility says paying for excess electricity does not pay their fixed cost. with me is harold turner,

company in new hampshire, a tech -- architecture and building, and you're part of the clean tech council. nice it would have you here. >> thank you. >> you have your house, a great example of net metering. you've established net meet tering in your hone house, tell us what you've done. >> it includes a 12 kilowatt sized pv system and that's a strategy to go to net zero energy house. but for most people it's usually in the 6 to 8 kilowatt size for most residential properties. business and industry can do the same thing. the production from my pv system every day when the sun is out

and the times i'm using more and taking it out the grid and the times i'm producing more and using less, it goes out to the utility. >> you don't have much of a bill. >> whatever bill i have gets once a month. if i used more than i produce, i pay the kilowatt hours on the bill. if i have a month i've produced more than i used, you pay connected to the utility. >> let's talk about the cap that new hampshire has in place. 50 mega watts and legislation that would raise it to 75. why a cap? >> a cap goes back to really the fledging start of net metering 17 years ago. so there really wasn't an industry in place, there wasn't wasn't something that pricing and technology allowed people to do and that changed over the time since then. it's quite a vibrant business model in new hampshire as well as states all around the country. >> and you think this will pass, increasing the cap in new
8:22 am
>> i would hope at a minimum it would pass. new hampshire has a very small number at about one and a half percent of peek load. 15%. major. now, one of the issues is this, and you and i have talked about this, a fair rate to people who put power back on the grid. currently they get the full retail rate about 14 cents per kilowatt hour and that's an issue for the utilities and whether or not it constitutes a subsidy of the accounts of the solar panel owners with those costs pushed on to the other electric consumers. that's an issue talked about every time this comes up. what say you? >> well, what you really is that you're trading off kilowatt hours and the only times you get paid for any of your power is at

if you have any power in your bank, if you want to think of it that way, then you're getting the energy only rate, which for mine on the system, averaged seven cents over the last three years and they give you the option to roll it over or to get paid out if it's over 600 kilowatts. >> so the subsidy idea is a misnomer? >> yes. >> we'd like to keep going on there, but we're out of time. harold turner from the group in new hampshire and member of the this. >> if you want to see and hear that again go to wmur.com, click on news and economy. >> now, meteorologist josh judge forecast. josh: it's one of our beautiful look out the window forecast. it's gorgeous, but on the chilly side.
