2014 House Bill 5676: Expand electricity “net metering” mandate
  1. Introduced by Rep. Jeff Irwin (D) on June 12, 2014, to require the Public Service Commission to establish an alternative methodology for determining rates paid under a “net metering” mandate imposed on utilities, which requires them to purchase electricity from customers who generate small amounts. Among other things the alternative rate would have to compensate a net metering customer for value of electricity to “the electric provider, its customers, and society”.
    • Referred to the House Energy and Technology Committee on June 12, 2014.
