Avista wants to expand program

The Spokesman-Review

Avista Utilities is asking the Idaho Public Utilities Commission to allow an increase in the size of customer-owned power generation projects that qualify for the company’s net metering program.

Avista wants the limit raised from 25 kilowatts to 100 kilowatts on projects that generate power through solar, wind, biomass or hydropower.

Net metering allows customers to use excess power they generate to reduce future bills.

The commission is taking customer comments through June 17 on the proposal.
