It's NOT too late to install solar panels at homes and businesses in Kentucky and receive net-metering with parity and a 26% federal tax credit.
Under heavy pressure from the electric utility monopolies -- including $327,050 in campaign contributions -- the majority of the Ky. General Assembly voted to alter net metering in ways meant to extend those monopolies to the sun.
Kentucky Power, Inc., in Eastern Kentucky and, then, LG&E-KU requested approval to change their net-metering practices to harm consumers' investments in solar panels. However, based on the recent Public Service Commission ruling on the KPI case, LCAN is optimistic net-metering will suffer minimal damage. Still, you'll get the best net-metering terms if you install now.
If your solar project is installed before the coming PSC ruling goes into effect, you have a right to the existing net-metering rules for 25 years. (If you're considering a commercial project and are able to use most or all of the power it would produce in real time, changes to net-metering are less of a concern.)
