2016 Statute


66-1268.Same; net metered facilities; standards; limitation of liability for utility. (a) Net metered facilities must meet all applicable safety, performance, interconnection and reliability standards established by the national electrical code, the national electrical safety code, the institute of electrical and electronics engineers, underwriters laboratories, the federal energy regulatory commission and any local governing authorities. A utility may require that a customer-generator's system contain a switch, circuit breaker, fuse or other easily accessible device or feature located in immediate proximity to the customer-generator's metering equipment that would allow a utility worker the ability to manually and instantly disconnect the unit from the utility's electric distribution system.

(b) A utility may not require a customer-generator whose net metering facility meets the standards in subsection (a) to comply with additional safety or performance standards or perform or pay for additional tests or purchase additional liability insurance. A utility shall not be liable directly or indirectly for permitting or continuing to allow an attachment of a net metered facility or for the acts or omissions of the customer-generator that cause loss or injury, including death, to any third party.
