This guide summarizes the variations in state laws that determine whether or not meter aggregation is an option for local governments, explores the unique opportunities that it can extend to public-sector photovoltaic projects, and describes the important details that must be considered when promoting or pursuing such a policy. Aggregate net metering is the practice of allowing one or more customers to combine their electrical meters for the purpose of net metering. Because local governments typically have many electric accounts and meters, aggregate net metering is one of the most relevant aspects of solar policy to local government solar projects.
