§ 75.14. Meters and metering.
(a) A customer-generator facility used for net metering must be equipped with a single bidirectional meter that can measure and record the flow of electricity in both directions at the same rate. If the customer-generator agrees, a dual meter arrangement may be substituted for a single bidirectional meter.
(b) If the customer-generators existing electric metering equipment does not meet the requirements in subsection (a), the EDC shall install new metering equipment for the customer-generator at the EDCs expense. Any subsequent metering equipment change necessitated by the customer-generator shall be paid for by the customer-generator.
(c) When the customer-generator intends to take title or transfer title to any alternative energy credits which may be produced by the customer-generators facility, the customer-generator shall bear the cost of additional net metering equipment required to qualify the alternative energy credits in accordance with the act.
(d) When the customer-generator expressly rejects ownership of alternative energy credits produced by the customer-generators facility, the EDC may supply additional metering equipment required to qualify the alternative energy credit at the EDCs expense. In those circumstances, the EDC shall take title to any alternative energy credit produced. An EDC shall, prior to taking title to any alternative energy credits produced by a customer-generator, fully inform the customer-generator of the potential value of the alternative energy credits and other options available to the customer-generator for the disposition of those credits. A customer-generator is not prohibited from having a qualified meter service provider install metering equipment for the measurement of generation, or from selling alternative energy credits to a third party other than an EDC.
(e) Virtual meter aggregation on properties owned or leased and operated by the same customer-generator shall be allowed for purposes of net metering. Virtual meter aggregation shall be limited to meters located on properties owned or leased and operated by the same customer-generator within 2 miles of the boundaries of the customer-generators property and within a single EDCs service territory. All service locations to be aggregated must be EDC service location accounts held by the same individual or legal entity receiving retail electric service from the same EDC and have measureable load independent of any alternative energy system. Physical meter aggregation shall be at the customer-generators expense. The EDC shall provide the necessary equipment to complete physical aggregation. If the customer-generator requests virtual meter aggregation, it shall be provided by the EDC at the customer-generators expense. The customer-generator shall be responsible only for any incremental expense entailed in processing his account on a virtual meter aggregation basis.
