Electric utilities; net energy metering; standby charges. Requires the State Corporation Commission, before approving a supplier's proposed standby charge methodology, to find that a value of solar analysis demonstrates that the standby charges reflect the supplier's net costs or benefits properly associated with serving the customers that have installed a net metered generation facility. The bill specifies that a value of solar analysis determines such net costs or benefits by subtracting the value of all benefits provided to the supplier or the electric grid as a result of the installation and operation of the solar generation facility from the portion of the supplier's infrastructure costs that are properly associated with serving such customers.
