Member Brief: Will Hawaii’s Self-Supply Program Fundamentally Reshape the State’s Solar and Battery Markets? (August 2016)

Exploring Hawaii’s net metering solution and lessons for the mainland

Net metering for new customers is ending in Hawaii, and being replaced over the long-term by what is known as the ‘self-supply’ option. Customers can install solar but they must consume or store everything on-site in real time and cannot export any excess to the grid. The transition to a ‘self-supply’ solar market that prohibits grid export will start in earnest at the end of 2016, enabled first by battery storage and then enhanced by forthcoming time-of-use electricity rates. This member brief looks at the aggregation of technologies necessary for customers to take advantage of this option, and the policy adjustments to improve it going forward, both in Hawaii and on the mainland.
