There's a debate that’s percolating in the residential solar power market that, if it’s not resolved carefully, could end up hammering the renewables industry and the wallets of rooftop solar customers. The debate is about net energy metering. For those of you who don’t know what net energy metering is … don’t worry… Joseph Triepke from Lium Research joins us to explain what net energy metering is (3:38) and why you should care about it … even if you think the rooftop solar market has nothing to do with you (11:41).

This debate has created strange bedfellows (20:40) as it features competing factors surrounding the economics of residential solar, equity in energy (22:20) and the jobs, jobs, jobs that are supposed to keep powering the energy transition (20:06).

The "Renewable energy project or NOT a renewable energy project" quiz returns (34:40) and we also debut a new segment of the show called "The PodBrief" (37:05)
