A. The Commission shall require a Phase II Utility as defined in subdivision A 1 of
§ 56-585.1 to submit a proposal to the Commission to conduct a pilot program, not to exceed
10 megawatts in the aggregate, in its certificated service territory to allow any
school in a public school division in the Commonwealth that generates electricity
from a wind-powered or solar-powered renewable energy generation facility located
at the school in amounts that exceed the amount of electricity consumed by the school
in a billing period, at the option of the school board, to either (i) credit such
excess electricity to the metered accounts of one or more other schools in the same
public school division, as directed by the school board, in a manner that reduces
the amount of electricity for which the other school or schools are billed and provides
the other school or schools with a credit against the amount billed to the other school
or schools, which credit shall be at the same rate that the school or schools would
otherwise be charged for such amount of electricity, without the assessment by the
supplier of any service charges or fees in connection with or arising out of such
crediting or (ii) receive payment for such excess electricity from the electric utility
at the contractually negotiated rate. The duration of any pilot program approved by the Commission pursuant to this section
shall be six years.
B. The Commission shall, by December 1, 2018, adopt such rules or establish such guidelines
as may be necessary for its general administration of the pilot program established
under this section.
C. Any electric utility participating in the pilot program established under this
section shall report to the General Assembly by December 1 of each year the pilot
program is in effect, commencing in 2020, regarding the status of the pilot program's
enrollment and any other information that may be appropriate.
