Solar and Wind Distributed Generation (AB 920)

BILL SUMMARY:
This bill expands the current net-metering programs for wind and solar to allow net-metered customers to sell any excess electricity they produce over the course of a year to their electric utility at a rate set either by the Public Utilities Commission or by the publicly-owned utility. The rate shall be set to provide the customer-generator "just and reasonable" compensation for the surplus energy sales, while leaving other ratepayers unaffected. The utility retains ownership of the renewable energy credits (RECs) associated with any net surplus electricity it must purchase, while the customer will retain the REC associated with any electricity generated and consumed by the customer.
