Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Public Utilities Act. Requires electric utilities and alternative retail electric suppliers to provide net energy metering capabilities for their retail customers that own and operate solar or wind electrical generating facilities. Provides that net production by a customer shall be credited to its bill at the same rate the electric utility or alternative retail electrical supplier charges for electricity provided to the customer. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Public Utilities Act. Provides that an eligible customer shall pay for all costs associated with the electric utility providing the required interconnection and secondary meter needed, and if necessary the real time pricing equipment needed, to participate in net energy metering. Provides that eligible customers participating in net energy metering with electric utilities serving 200,000 or more customers shall be reimbursed for the electricity supplied to the utility based upon real-time pricing. Provides that eligible customers participating in net energy metering with electric utilities serving less than 200,000 customers shall be reimbursed for the electricity supplied to the utility based upon the utility's avoided cost. Provides that the electric utility shall make all payments to eligible customers promptly. Provides that within 3 months after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the Illinois Commerce Commission shall establish standards for net energy metering and the interconnection of solar and wind electric generating equipment to the utility system if the Commission determines that such standards are necessary for safe and adequate service and further the public policy set forth in the amendatory Act. Provides that an electric utility shall offer net metering to eligible customers until the load of its net energy metering customers equals 0.1% of the total peak demand supplied by the electric utility during the previous year. Provides that electric utilities are authorized to offer net energy metering beyond 0.1% of peak load if they so choose. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the engrossed bill with the following changes. Provides that and "eligible customer" means a retail customer that owns or (instead of and) operates a solar, wind, or other eligible renewable electrical generating facility with a rated capacity of not more than 2,000 kilowatts that is located on the customer's premises and is intended primarily to offset the customer's own electrical requirements. Provides that "net electricity metering" means the measurement, during the billing period applicable to an eligible customer, of the net amount of electricity supplied (instead of delivered) by an electricity provider to the customer's premises or provided to the electricity provider by the customer. Adds language specifying the equipment that shall be used at a net metering facility for residential customers and non-residential customers. Changes provisions concerning credits for customers at the end of a year that participate in net metering, and specifies the process that shall be used to determine the credits. Provides that within 120 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the Illinois Commerce Commission shall establish standards for net energy metering and, if the Commission has not already acted on its own initiative, standards for the interconnection of eligible renewable generating equipment to the utility system. Provides that all electricity providers shall begin to offer net energy metering no later than April 1, 2008. Provides that an electricity provider shall maintain records and report annually to the Commission on certain information. Adds language for an optional meter aggregation program. Provides that none of the provisions of the amendatory Act shall affect the right of an electricity provider, to continue to provide or the right of a retail customer to continue to receive, service pursuant to a contract for electric service between the electricity provide and the retail customer, in accordance with the prices, terms, and conditions provided for in that contract, and that either the electricity provider or the customer may require compliance with the prices, terms, and conditions of that contract. Makes technical changes. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that notwithstanding certain provisions, an electricity provider must require (rather than must provide) dual-channel metering for non-residential customers operating eligible renewable electrical generating facilities with a nameplate rating over 40 kilowatts and up to 2,000 kilowatts.
