APPA's Cater questions long term value of home solar installations, net metering

Is there a societal net benefit to net metering? During today's OnPoint, James Cater, director of economic and financial policy at the American Public Power Association, discusses a recent report that establishes a framework for avoiding cost-shifting to consumers who do not produce their own solar energy. Cater also talks about the role state renewable portfolio standards have played in accelerating the debate on net metering.
