This is a good move for the company. Third party solar owners are becoming a very popular way to go on the West Coast. Building owners like myself provide the foot print for solar production with little or no out of pocket cost. The solar array owner meters the electrical production and sells it as a tax credit to municipal energy producers to meeting required renewable energy production requirements passed by the taxpayers. As the foot print owner, I get a small percent of the revenue each month and tax deduction. The key is accurate metering and that's where Itron will shine with his cellular metering system.
