Yeah, in light of the lists of acceptable meters that I posted yesterday (one of which included mine), I AGAIN asked my broker if my meter was sufficient. Hey, it's on a friggin' list. I know they're totally annoyed with me, but I feel like there are people relying on me to help clear this up.
They replied that the new meter is "in addition to the electric meter installed by the local utility to measure the home or business' electric consumption." (that's a quote from the NJ BPU declaration).
They added that "if the meter you are speaking about is your utility net meter, then it is not sufficient to meet the requirements of the NJ BPU mandate."
I dunno', I guess I'm supposed to feel like an idiot, but I just don't. This shouldn't be so complicated, but I still haven't seen a simple explanation as to what equipment is needed in order to continue to accrue SRECs. After asking various questions of various people I'm now satisfied that my setup doesn't cut the mustard,
A simple paragraph and maybe a schematic or diagram showing what is needed and where it fits into the existing system would do wonders to clear this up for me and the dozens of blog readers that are e-mailing me. Part of the problem is that there really isn't an advocate for the small solar producers, somebody who has a stake in getting this message delivered clearly.
