Philippines’ regulator opposes net metering expansion

PV Magazine:

The Philippines introduced its net metering scheme for solar up to 100 kW in 2014. Ever since, however, only 10 MW of rooftop PV systems have been connected to the country’s grid.

In a recent report, the U.S.-based Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) has explained the reasons for this failure. According to the study, regulatory, administrative and financial hurdles are preventing more electricity consumers from installing rooftop arrays, as well as the resistance of local utilities.
