Renewable energy power purchase agreements; pilot programs. Expands the pilot program for renewable energy power purchase agreements authorized under legislation enacted in 2013 by directing that a pilot program be conducted by Appalachian Power. Currently, a pilot program is authorized only within Dominion Power's service territory. The measure provides that within the certificated service territory of Appalachian Power, nonprofit, private institutions of higher education are deemed to be customer-generators eligible to participate in the pilot program, without the requirement that they participate in the utility's net energy metering program. The aggregated capacity of all generation facilities that are subject to third party power purchase agreements in Appalachian Power's pilot program is capped at 10 megawatts. Read the Bill »
