SECTION 39-26.6-18

§ 39-26.6-18. Utility right to separately meter.

Owners of medium-scale, commercial-scale, and large-scale solar projects and other distributed-generation technologies shall be required to provide, at their cost, a revenue quality meter to standards approved by the division of public utilities and carriers and provide access to the information from the meter to the electric-distribution company to measure the output of the generation. The electric-distribution company shall have the discretion to install the second meter in a parallel configuration to the retail meter or behind the meter, provided that a parallel installation shall have no effect on the right of the customer to net meter using the net of the two meters. The electric-distribution company also shall have the right to install its own revenue quality meter for small-scale solar projects if not being supplied by the owner. The electric-distribution company shall recover the installation and capital cost of the separate meters it installs for small-scale solar projects in the annual reconciliation of solar costs under § 39-26.6-25.
