This bill authorizes "virtual" net metering for certain customers of an electric public utility (utility). Under the bill, a small scale hydropower facility put into service after the effective date of P.L.2012, c.24 with a capacity of three megawatts or less (facility) is eligible for net metering. The bill authorizes a facility to deliver or sell power to up to 10 end-use customers, who are located within 10 miles of the facility and net-metered within the service territory of a single electric public utility, and designate the end-use customers to be credited by the electric power supplier or basic generation service provider with the excess generation of the facility. The bill requires an electric public utility, electric power supplier, or a basic generation service provider to provide standby power at the request of a facility or an end-use customer who uses power generated by the facility. Under the bill, "standby power" means power made available during a facility outage to a facility or to an end-use customer who uses power generated by the facility.
