Net energy metering; standby charges. Requires the State Corporation Commission, when determining whether to approve a utility's proposed standby charge methodology, to find that the cost and benefit components used to calculate the proposed standby charges are based on load research on the affected class of eligible customer-generators and that the number of eligible customer-generators used in such load research is sufficient to form reasonable statistical conclusions about such costs and benefits. In addition, the standby charges collected from eligible customer-generators shall allow the supplier to recover only the portion of the supplier's net costs that are properly associated with serving eligible customer-generators. The measure also requires the Commission to review standby charges approved prior to July 1, 2013, for conformance with these new requirements for standby charge approval.
