(2) another entity that provides electricity at wholesale or retail for consideration, other than a person who participates in a net metering program offered by an electric utility.
This subsection shall be interpreted to clarify and not to change the general assembly's intent with respect to this section.
(b) For purposes of this section, "wind power device" means a device, such as a windmill or a wind turbine, that is designed to utilize the kinetic energy of moving air to provide mechanical energy or to produce electricity.

The amount of the deduction equals the remainder of (1) the assessed value of the real property or mobile home with the wind power device included, minus (2) the assessed value of the real property or mobile home without the wind power device.
