Program offered solar customers a 1:1 credit for every kWh generated which passed costs on to others
Saskatchewan’s popular net-metering program was unsustainable because of its growing cost, according to an economics professor.
The program provided solar customers with 1:1 net metering, meaning that for every kilowatt hour of power put into the system, they would get a 15 cent credit back for future energy use. The credit was non-monetary.
The problem was, that solar energy was only saving SaskPower about 7.5 cents/kWh — but the credit was twice that.
