Despite Republicans dominating the Indiana State Legislature, two bills are on the docket which could make a big difference for Indiana homeowners who want to install solar panels.
SB 430 repeals SB 309 which limited the use of “net-metering” on Indiana’s power-grids. Net-metering is a policy that lets customers sell any extra power they generate back to the power-company; it’s one of the surest way to make rooftop solar cost effective.
Some homeowners associations have a negative opinion about solar energy systems. HB 1331 restricts their ability to prohibit homeowners from installing solar panels.
