This benefits homeowners who have solar or who want to go solar.  There will be no changes in the net metering cost rate for the next 15 years.

In other words, the rate that homeowners get for a kWh of electricity will remain equal to the rate that the Utility companies charge for a kWh of electricity.

Duke Energy tried unsuccessfully, and unfairly, to reduce this rate, as I described in an earlier post.
