Indiana - HB1421 - 2019

Net metering for tax supported power customers. Provides that, notwithstanding the law requiring an electricity supplier to include in its net metering tariff a limit on the aggregate amount of net metering facility nameplate capacity of 1.5% of the electricity supplier's most recent summer peak load, an electricity supplier may, at its own discretion, increase the aggregate amount of net metering facility nameplate capacity beyond the limit of 1.5% of the electricity supplier's most recent summer peak load. Defines "tax supported customer" as an electricity customer whose operations are directly funded with revenue from state or local taxes, such as public schools, public libraries, and units of local government. Provides that a tax supported customer that is participating in an electricity supplier's net metering tariff on July 1, 2019, shall continue to be served under the terms and conditions of the net metering tariff despite the provisions of the law under which the participation of other customers in the electricity supplier's net metering tariff may be ended. Provides that a tax supported customer participating in net metering shall be credited for the electricity supplied back to the electricity supplier at the rate that would apply to the tax supported customer's purchase of electricity if the tax supported customer were not participating in net metering.
