Current through June 21, 2023

Authority: IC 8-1-1-3

Affected: IC 8-1-2-33; IC 8-1-2-34

Sec. 8.

(a) A net metering customer operating a net metering facility shall maintain homeowners, commercial, or other insurance providing coverage in the amount of at least one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) for the liability of the insured against loss arising out of the use of a net metering facility. Net metering customers shall not be required by the utility to obtain liability insurance with limits higher than that which is stated in this section, nor shall such net metering customers be required by the utility to purchase additional liability insurance, for example, insurance coverage that exceeds one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) where the net metering customer's existing insurance policy provides coverage against loss arising out of the use of a net metering facility by virtue of not explicitly excluding coverage for such loss.

(b) The utility and the net metering customer shall indemnify and hold the other party harmless from and against all claims, liability, damages, and expenses, including attorney's fees, based on any injury to any person, including loss of life or damage to any property, including loss of use thereof, arising out of, resulting from, or connected with, or that may be alleged to have arisen out of, resulted from, or connected with an act or omission by such other party, its employees, agents, representatives, successors, or assigns in the construction, ownership, operation, or maintenance of such party's facilities used in net metering. This indemnification provision is not applicable in the case of governmental net metering customers that are restricted from entering into indemnification provisions.
