   12         3.The net metering may include fixed charges, including
   13  base facilities charges, electric grid access fees, or monthly
   14  minimum bills, to help ensure that the public utility recovers
   15  the fixed costs of serving customers who engage in net metering
   16  and that the general body of public utility ratepayers does not
   17  subsidize customer-owned or -leased renewable generation.
   18         (b)Any public utility customer who owns or leases
   19  renewable generation that is in service before January 1, 2023,
   20  pursuant to a standard interconnection agreement offered by a
   21  public utility shall be granted 20 years to continue to use the
   22  net metering rate design and rates that applied before the
   23  revised net metering rule was adopted under paragraph (a). This
   24  paragraph applies to customers who purchase or lease real
   25  property upon which customer-owned or -leased renewable
   26  generation is installed for all or part of that 20-year period.
