Utah's Hometown ~ Baseball, hot dogs and apple pie -- we don't just say it, we live it! Kaysville is the type of city people love to call home. An active community where traditions are kept, families are valued, and citizens enjoy a sense of belonging and the spirit of community.
We're uniquely situated and conveniently located "in the middle of everything." Kaysville isn't just a great place to live, it's a great place to do business. Great accessibility and low taxes are just some of the benefits our businesses enjoy. It's obvious why Kaysville has become Utah's Hometown. Come see what all of the fuss is about.

Net Metering

Evaluation of Program Taking Place

Kaysville City has placed a temporary moratorium on its roof-top solar Net Metering Program to evaluate whether an alternative Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program should be implemented.  This evaluation is being conducted in conjunction with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS).  Kaysville is a member of UAMPS.

Kaysville supports energy efficiency as well as installation of home-based electrical generation systems by customers that reduce their energy use and costs.  Energy efficiency is supported through rebates on qualifying appliances.  Kaysville is able to measure the reduction in use associated with these new appliances.  This allows Kaysville to use this data in future resource planning.

However, Kaysville's roof-top solar policy currently uses a Net Metering rate structure.  This policy produces a rate (offsetting power purchases from Kaysville) that causes customers not participating in Net Metering to subsidize customers that have installed roof-top solar and are using Net Metering.  Kaysville desires to have energy rates that are fair to all customers based on the cost to serve each class of customer.

Kaysville adopted its Net Metering policy at a time roof-top solar was relatively new and with very little interest in the community.  Wanting to accommodate customers desiring to install roof-top solar, Kaysville and many other cities in Utah, adopted the Net Metering policy.  Net Metering is a simple way to deal with roof-top solar generation, but experience now shows it is not an equitable policy for all customers.
