Mississippi Net Metering Study
Synapse assisted the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) in Docket No. 2011-AD-2, a proceeding opened to develop and implement net metering and implementation standards for Mississippi. Synapse conducted a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis for net metering and interconnection in Mississippi, to help the PSC make an informed decision regarding the costs and benefits and assist it in developing appropriate policies for the state. Synapse assessed both the direct and indirect costs and benefits of net metering and interconnection—whether under a net metering and interconnection or alternative policy scenario—and considered and quantified both energy-related and non-energy costs and benefits. Based on the findings of the Synapse report, the Commission found it is in the best interest of ratepayers to proceed with the development of proposed net metering and interconnection rules.
