Agricultural net energy metering.  Creates a category of eligible customer-generators under the net energy metering program for operators of agricultural net metering facilities. An agricultural net energy metering facility may be served by multiple meters located at separate but contiguous sites owned or controlled by the same entity. The facility may aggregate the electricity generation and consumption as measured at these meters for purposes of participating in the net energy metering program. The measure also revises the criteria for qualifying as an "eligible customer-generator" to provide that a utility may elect a higher capacity for customer classes, rather than higher limits for a generating facility.
