Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Public Utilities Act. Changes the definitions of "eligible customer" and "eligible renewable electrical generating facility" as used in certain provisions concerning net electricity metering. Deletes a provision allowing the electricity provider, in the case of non-residential customers, to arrange for the local electric utility or a meter service provider to install and maintain metering equipment capable of measuring the flow of electricity both into and out of the customer's facility at the same rate and ratio, typically through the use of a dual channel meter. Deletes a provision that requires an electricity provider to require 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. Provides that an electricity provider shall provide net metering to eligible customers until the load of its net metering customers equals 5% (instead of 1%) of the total peak demand supplied by that electricity provider during the previous year. Provides that each electricity provider shall (rather than shall consider whether to) allow meter aggregation for the purposes of net metering on certain properties. Provides that meter aggregation shall be allowed whether the eligible renewable energy generating device is located on the premises of the eligible customer or is interconnected to the distribution grid of the eligible customer's electricity provider or alternative retail electric supplier. Provides that meter aggregation shall be subject to the terms and conditions approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission. Makes other changes.
