AREGCBA § 8(2): "The public service commission shall, within 60 days from the effective date hereof, commence a proceeding to establish a program under which renewable owners would fund a program to provide a discount or credit on the utility bills of the utility's customers in a renewable host community, or a compensatory or environmental benefit to such customers.
