Net metering program

About net metering

The BC Utilities Commission approved FortisBC’s net metering tariff application in September 2009. The approval means FortisBC can implement a new net metering program, allowing residential and commercial customers enrolled in the program to be credited for electricity they produce.

FortisBC has defined net metering as the metering and billing practice that allows for the flow of electricity both to and from a customer through a bidirectional meter. Residential and commercial customers can offset part or all of their own electrical requirements up to 50kW through generating their own clean energy and selling it back to FortisBC. FortisBC will credit customers for net energy they produce at their existing retail rate.

FortisBC will be accepting applications for the program starting October 1, 2009.   Please find the forms needed below.
