Article 9 in Belmont

Town Meeting Members will vote on Article 9 during this Town Meeting season. The article reads:

Shall Belmont’s state representative and state senator be instructed to vote in favor of legislation requiring the municipal electric utilities: (1) to adopt the same net metering rates and policies that are applicable to investor-owned electric utilities in the state, and (2) to adopt rates and policies that do not discriminate against, or impose other financial or technical impediments upon customers who seek to generate their own electricity from solar power?

This type of non-binding resolution was recently passed in the South Shore. You can see the results from that fall election here.
