The legislation is expected to reignite the state's rooftop solar market and bring back jobs. Net metering, however, won't be what it once was.

SB 392 establishes a statewide community solar goal of 200 MW by 2023, directs state regulators to develop program rules, and creates a bill crediting structure.
