A Potentially BIG Reason to Act Now: Changes in Net-Metering
Under tremendous pressure from the electric utility monopolies -- including $327,050 in campaign contributions -- the majority of the Ky.

If your solar project is installed beforehand, you still have a right to the existing net-metering rules for 25 years. If considering a commercial project able to use all of its power as it's produced, you probably don't need to be concerned about these changes.
LCAN will provide additional guidance here, including tips on power storage, as soon as it can be developed.
