As non-profit entities, rural electric cooperatives are exempt from the fee imposed for a business license and the taxes assessed on gross receipts set forth in Chapter 23 of Title 30. This Act confirms that the non-commercial generation of solar electricity by a rural electric cooperative is also exempt from the business license requirements and gross receipts taxation otherwise applicable to steam, gas and electric companies producing electricity for sale in this State. Municipalities are already exempt from payment of gross receipts taxes on the production of electricity.
