Value of Solar Tariff :
- Minnesota is the first state to set a Value of Solar Tariff (VOST). VOST is a kilowatt hour (kWh) payment for solar electric on a production meter for systems under one megawatt. VOST quantifies solar’s value to utilities and society as an alternative to net-metering.
- Investor Owned Utilities may opt into a new VOST. The utility would pay for solar production at its measurable value to its rate payers.
