Here is an example of some Solar Power News in Mississippi:

New Mississippi rule requires utilities to pay low-income customers up front for solar installations

Mississippi is the latest state to revise its net metering rules with social equity in mind. But in a ruling issued earlier this week, the Mississippi PSC took a new approach to increase rooftop solar access for low-income households.

Tuesday’s order calls for the creation of a new program offering $3,500 rebates to residents who install solar systems, with the money potentially payable directly to the installer on proof of completion. The order also permits customers to aggregate multiple meters on a single property to share the potential benefits of rooftop solar, creates incentives for the installation of solar panels at Mississippi schools, and retains an existing 2 cent/kWh added incentive for low-income households that participate in net metering.

Mississippi does not offer one-to-one net metering. Rather, the state’s program, which has been renamed “net renewable generation” by Tuesday’s order, provides for residents to be paid a dollar amount equivalent to the total value of electricity consumed and the value of any excess generation that flows to the grid. Even with an incentive that pays 2 cents/kWh to net metering households earning up to 250% of the federal poverty line, solar installations have lagged in the state. Now, existing customers from that program will be grandfathered into the new program for the next 25 years.
