Electric utilities; competition. Limits the scope of the provision that allows individual retail customers to aggregate or combine their demands in order to meet the five megawatt threshold above which they are permitted to purchase electric energy from any licensed supplier. The measure provides that the demands of individual retail customers may be aggregated or combined to meet this level only if they (i) are served by an electric cooperative with more than 150,000 customer accounts, (ii) have a combined noncoincident peak demand that exceeds 120 megawatts, and (iii) receive service at sites that are within 20 miles of each other.
