This bill permits an electric public utility, electric power supplier, or basic generation service provider to enter into an agreement with a building owner to install or otherwise provide to the building owner a "solar electric system," as defined in the bill, to be used for the building, in exchange for financial compensation from the owner, or with respect to the solar renewable energy certificates allowed under section 38 of P.L.1999, c.23 (N.J.S.A.48:3-87), that may be derived from the production of solar renewable energy by the solar electric system, pursuant to the agreement entered into with the owner under this section, for the installation or the provision of the solar electric system. The purpose of the bill is to create an incentive to electric public utilities and suppliers to encourage more building owners to use solar electric systems for their buildings. This incentive will help meet the State's goal of increasing the use of solar electric power, which is a renewable form of energy.
