Under the threat of legislative action to revoke net metering for customers of investor-owned utilities, SIREN organized two Solarize phases in 2017. The first phase resulted in 93 systems/560 kilowatts under contract before the legislature met in July. Under pressure from solar advocates, the legislature amended the bill such that solar owners installed by year end 2017 were grandfathered into net metering until 2047. Another 45 systems/306 kilowatts were installed in the second phase, closing out the year. Duke customers had priority because REMC customers were not affected by the rule change and deadline. dditionally, Solarize Indiana city teams took 65 homeowners solar by the end of 2017.
