(UNDATED) - Clean-energy supporters in Indiana say a new bill would kill solar power in the state.

House Bill 1320, introduced by Rep. Eric Koch, R-Bedford, would change terms and allow demand charges for utility customers who generate electricity with solar systems.

Electricity customers in Indiana who use solar power receive credits for selling excess power back to the grid.

Opponents against the bill say H-B 1320 would minimize those credits, and allow utilities to set fixed charges for solar users.

Brad Morton of Morton Solar in Evansville is among those speaking out against the legislation, saying it would increase the cost to install solar power, effectively killing it in Indiana.
