2005 SB 1006/a Net Electric Co-op Metering System
The original bill, Senate Bill 1006 (Sen. Cisneros), promoted small-scale renewable energy projects by requiring public utilities and rural electric cooperatives to purchase excess energy generated by certain small-scale renewable energy projects. The amendment, sponsored by Sen. Payne on the Senate Floor, gutted the bill by changing the compensation formula for net-metered renewable energy, effectively eliminating any incentive to produce small-scale renewables.
Amendment passed, and the bill had to be vetoed by the Governor.
