Rooftop solar suffered a serious setback in Indiana with the enactment of SEA 309 during the 2017 legislative session; this law made Indiana the first state in the nation to legislatively phase out “net metering,” the principal incentive to promote rooftop solar. However, there is hope for Indiana to make forward progress on solar this legislative session! We support the bi-partisan HB 1228, which repeals SEA 309. We will also be making the case for public policies to make solar more affordable in Indiana, such as third-party financing and PACE financing.
