Hoosiers, Don’t Miss Your Chance to Go Solar!

The clock is ticking on net metering in Indiana

Net metering in Indiana is going away.
Don’t miss your chance to maximize your investment in rooftop solar by installing your panels before July 1, 2022.



What is net metering?

Net metering is a fair and simple way to credit solar owners for the electricity they generate. When your solar panels produce more solar energy than your home uses, your utility company provides you with a bill credit at the same rate that all consumers pay for their electricity. It’s a great way to earn money & offset the cost of solar panels.

Why is it going away?

A 2017 law called SEA 309 ends net metering programs for new solar customers after July 1, 2022. It applies to all of Indiana’s monopoly investor-owned utilities (IOUs). IOUs serve more than 80% of Indiana’s electric customers. Net metering has already ended for customers served by CenterPoint (formerly Vectren) in southwest Indiana and non-residential customers served by NIPSCO in the northern part of the state. 

If you’ve been thinking about going solar, now is the time to act!

 Your solar panels need to be installed before July 2022 to enroll in your utility’s net metering program through 2032. Installing your solar panels with one of our open co-ops this year will ensure that you receive net metering. Don’t miss out on 10+ years of savings.

You can also let your state legislators know that you support net metering by signing our petition!

SUN and Solarize Indiana are here to help.

Solar United Neighbors (SUN) and Solarize Indiana are both nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping Hoosiers like you! Our local programs around the state are designed to make it easy for you to go solar.

What is a solar co-op?

Imagine walking into a solar company’s office with 50 neighbors and saying, “We all want to get solar. What kind of deal can you give us?” You save money by going solar in a group. Since 2007, we’ve helped over 200 co-ops go solar in 12 different states.
