On November 6, the DOER announced the establishment of the Net Metering and Solar Task Force, pursuant to Ch. 251 of the Acts of 2014, Section 7. Information on Task Force members, meetings, and materials are available on the official website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) here.
The first Task Force meeting will take place on Thursday, November 13th from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. ET, at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection office in Boston.
Task Force meetings are open to the public, but the DOER has requested that attendees RSVP to Marissa.Fimiani@state.ma.us, as space is limited. Although the meetings are open to the public, the DOER encourages stakeholders to work through Task Force members to provide input. In addition to the regular Task Force meetings, two Stakeholder meetings will be held to allow for public input.
There will be a call-in number for those who are not able to travel to Boston, which will likely be posted on the EEA site referenced above.
