There are two important deadlines looming for anyone considering installing solar panels on their residences or businesses in Indiana.

The first, for those supplied by an investor-owned utility like AEP/I&M or Duke is June 30, 2022, the end date to qualify for net metering (per Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) No. 309, previously SB309). Those who qualify will have net metering until June 30, 2032.
