SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Distributed solar generation demonstration programs. Directs the State Corporation Commission (SCC) to exercise its existing authority to consider for approval petitions filed by a utility to own and operate distributed solar generation facilities and to offer special tariffs to facilitate customer-owned distributed solar generation as alternatives to net energy metering. The SCC's approval of such programs shall follow notice to all affected parties and opportunity for hearing. After distributed solar generation installations cease to be part of a demonstration program, they shall continue to operate either as utility-owned facilities or as customer-owned installations pursuant to the terms of a tariff arrangement.
