There is a strong unconfirmed rumor that HB 1320 concerning the generation of electricity by distributed generation including net metering (170 IAC 4-4.2) and interconnection (170 IAC 4-4.3) rules will be heard as follows:
WHAT: House Utilities Committee Hearing on HB 1320
DATE: Wednesday, January 21, 2015
TIME: 1:30 pm EST
PLACE: Room 156-?, State House, Indianapolis
If HB 1320 is scheduled for a committee hearing, you should be able to watch the hearing on-line at http://iga.in.gov/legislative/2015/committees/utilities_and_energy_2000
IndianaDG is gravely concerned about the impact of HB 1320 on customer-owned roof-top solar, renewable energy and distributed generation development in Indiana.
Please email IndianaDG at Laura.Arnold@IndianaDG.net to receive information about the bill and what we think it does in a Question and Answer format. This information continues to be updated as more information becomes available. We have many unanswered about this proposed legislation and its impact on Hoosiers who want to install renewable energy systems for their homes, businesses, farms and schools. So far we do not think HB 1320 is good legislation that will benefit renewable energy.
HB 1320 was introduced by Rep. Eric Koch (R-Bedford) who chairs the House Utilities Committee. The other members of the committee with their email addresses are as follows:
