"(c) By the end of the year 2012, at least 0.0125 percent of the electricity required by
1.4paragraphs (a) and (b) to be generated by each electric utility must be generated by solar
1.5energy. At least 60 percent of the required solar energy electric generation by each utility
1.6must be distributed solar generated at a customer's site with customer-owned facilities.
1.7For the purposes of this paragraph, "distributed solar" means solar electric equipment that
1.8meets the requirements of section 216C.25 with a total peak generating capacity of 100
1.9kilowatts or less used for generating electricity primarily for use in a residential property or
1.10small business, as defined by section 645.445, to reduce the effective electric load for that
1.11residence or business. An electric utility that generates less than 60 percent of its required
1.12solar energy electric generation with customer-owned distributed solar must demonstrate
1.13that reasonable efforts were made to achieve sufficient customer participation in a timely
1.14manner. The commission may not delay or modify the solar energy requirement of this
1.15paragraph under authority of subdivision 2b, paragraph (a), clause (1).
