New York updates distributed solar tariff, clearing path for 1 GW of new generation

The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) on April 18 approved changes to the state's Value of Distributed Energy Resources (VDER) tariff, revising how some calculations are completed, creating a community credit and extending net metering to more projects. According to the PSC, the changes clear the way for development of more than 1,000 MW of community distributed generation — beyond the 500 MW regulators say is already planned. VDER was developed to replace net metering, and advocates say the new updates to the tariff will help to "unlock New York's community solar market" and move projects forward to construction.
