DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Net metering and interconnection rules. Requires the utility regulatory commission (IURC) to adopt emergency rules amending the IURC's net metering and interconnection rules for electric utilities. Requires the amended rules to: (1) make net metering available to residential, commercial, and industrial customers and K-12 schools; (2) allow a generating facility with a nameplate capacity of two megawatts or less to interconnect to the distribution facility of an electric utility; and (3) allow an electric utility to limit the total nameplate capacity of all generating facilities interconnected with its distribution system to 1% of the utility's most recent summer peak load. Provides that the existing rules are void to the extent they do not comply with the requirements for the amended rules. Requires the IURC to report to the regulatory flexibility committee on the IURC's progress in adopting the amended rules.
