Net Metering Program
If you want to generate your own renewable energy so you can reduce your electricity bill, you can join our Net Metering Program. Net metering customers use a bidirectional meter to record electricity flowing to and from their home or business, and they receive a credit on their bill for the energy they produce.
Eligibility requirements for the Net Metering Program
- A portion or all of your electricity requirements must be met using a renewable energy source such as hydro power, solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, wood residue energy or energy from organic municipal waste.
- The generation equipment must be located on your property.
- The power produced from the generation system only services your property.
- The generating capacity of the system is designed to offset some or all of your consumption. The maximum allowable generating capacity is 50 kW.
