LePage's dislike of net metering is well known, and in December, he sent a letter to the PUC asking it to let the new rules take effect Jan. 1, 2018. Instead, it appears the commission has trimmed six weeks off the delay, throwing many planned solar projects into disarray. Projects in place before the new deadline will receive compensation under the current rules; after the deadline, the declining compensation scheme will be in effect.
There is significant interest in bringing a cleaner energy mix to Arizona, but regulators want to know the costs and how they stack up against utilities' current plans. In a letter last week, Tobin requested RUCO conduct a full analysis of his proposal, but added that the analysis should not be seen as slowing down a possible decision. His plan includes a "Clean Peak" to require utilities to deliver an increasing portion of their renewable energy during peak electricity demand hours.
Bidgely has more than two dozen utility customers and continues to expand its offerings and cloud-based capabilities, which will give NV Energy the opportunity to test artificial intelligence and machine learning. "Home assessments are a key avenue for utility consumer engagement," Abhay Gupta, founder and CEO of Bidgely, said in a statement. Gupta said that by using disaggregation, Bidgely's systems know what appliances are in the home, and their relative cost and efficiency.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
