From the beginning, WAPA said there were a limited number of net metering permits available. It's about managing the electric load sources on the grid.

So can you install solar panels, reduce your wapa usage and cost - just not get paid by WAPA for any extra you generate?

No. The electric grid can only accommodate a certain amount of solar generated power.

The only way to set up solar energy now, if you do not already have a net metering permit, is to set up a standalone battery system. WAPA has no say-so in anything that is not connected to its grid.
