AN  ACT  to amend the public service law, in relation to the transfer of
  bill credits associated with the  electricity  produced  by  community
  distributed generation facilities

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The public service law is amended by adding a  new  section

TY"  SHALL  MEAN A PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM WITH A RATED CAPACITY OF NOT MORE
THAN FIVE MEGAWATTS OF ALTERNATING CURRENT THAT IS CONNECTED TO AN ELEC-
TRIC SYSTEM AND OPERATED IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN  ELECTRIC  CORPORATION'S
TRANSMISSION   AND  DISTRIBUTION  FACILITIES.    PARTICIPATING  ELECTRIC
CUSTOMERS RECEIVE A BILL CREDIT FOR THE ELECTRICITY GENERATED IN PROPOR-
TION TO THE SIZE OF THEIR INTEREST IN THE FACILITY, WITH AT LEAST  SIXTY
PERCENT  OF THE FACILITY'S PRODUCTION ALLOCATED TO PARTICIPATING CUSTOM-
ERS IN INCREMENTS OF TWENTY-FIVE KILOWATTS OR LESS.
  2. WITHIN NINETY DAYS OF THE  EFFECTIVE  DATE  OF  THIS  SECTION,  THE
COMMISSION  SHALL  DIRECT  ELECTRIC  CORPORATIONS TO FILE A MODEL TARIFF
PROVIDING FOR THE TRANSFER OF BILL CREDITS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ELECTRIC-
ITY PRODUCED BY COMMUNITY DISTRIBUTED GENERATION FACILITIES IN ONE ELEC-
TRIC CORPORATION TERRITORY TO THE ACCOUNTS OF SUBSCRIBERS IN OTHER ELEC-
TRIC CORPORATION TERRITORIES,  AND  ANY  OTHER  SETTLEMENT  SYSTEMS  AND
PROCESSES  NECESSARY  TO  EFFECTUATE  SUCH TRANSFERS IN A COST-EFFECTIVE
MANNER. FOLLOWING PUBLIC COMMENT ON THE MODEL TARIFF, THE PUBLIC SERVICE
COMMISSION SHALL, WITHIN TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY DAYS OF THE EFFECTIVE  DATE
OF THIS SECTION, APPROVE TARIFFS TO ENABLE SUCH TRANSFERS.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
