Concentration of CO2 in the Atmosphere

Concerned Citizens Left Bewildered

 About Solar Issues in Massachusetts

On January 5, 2018, Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities’ (DPU) decided to raise rates, creating uncertainty for future solar customers in the Eversource utility territory. Under the Eversource proposal approved by the Commission, solar customers in the state’s largest utility service area will be forced onto demand charges. These unpredictable charges are determined by a customer’s highest electricity usage over an entire monthly billing period.

Vote Solar is challenging this order and, in early February, submitted a petition of appeal filed in the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Learn more at

This decision seems to be counterintuitive to the role that Eversource has been recognized for as a green leader. It has left some concerned people in the area bewildered about this decision.
