  Section 1. Paragraph (b) of subdivision  4  of  section  66-j  of  the
public  service  law,  as amended by chapter 494 of the laws of 2014, is
amended to read as follows:
  (b) In the event that the amount of electricity produced by a  custom-
er-generator during the billing period exceeds the amount of electricity
used  by the customer-generator, the corporation shall apply a credit to
the next bill for service to the customer-generator for  the  net  elec-
tricity  provided  at  the  same  rate  per  kilowatt hour applicable to
service provided to other customers in the same service class  which  do
not  generate  electricity  onsite,  except for [micro-combined heat and
power or fuel cell customer-generators or] farm waste generating  equip-
ment  customer-generators as described in subparagraph (ix) of paragraph
(a) of subdivision one of this section, who  will  be  credited  at  the
corporation's  avoided  costs.  The  avoided  cost  credit  provided  to
[micro-combined heat and power or fuel cell customer-generators or] farm
waste generating equipment customer-generators as described in  subpara-
graph  (ix) of paragraph (a) of subdivision one of this section shall be
treated for ratemaking purposes as a  purchase  of  electricity  in  the
market that is includable in commodity costs.
  § 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after
it shall have become a law.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
