After speaking with the solar/wind installation company, the Town Builder’s office must be contacted regarding installations to ensure all permitting requirements are met. Please download a copy of our Net Metering Policy, located at the bottom of our page so that the solar installation company is familiar with our terms and conditions. Once the design of the system is completed you will need to fill out a service location card with our office so that we can approve where the net metering meters will be located. Once we receive the certificate of inspection from the Town Builder’s office we can begin installing the metered service.
The meter tech will install two meters. The first records your home's consumption, and the second records your solar production. You will get a monthly credit based on the reading of the solar production meter.
You will receive your electric bill each month for your home's electric usage . We’ll then take the kilowatt hours that your solar system produced and multiply it by our Power Supply rate (.06273) and apply a credit to your bill. If the credit is maintained for two or more annual reconciliations, the customer can request the credit to be issued in the form of a check. The Power Supply rate is subject to change annually.
The generating capacity of the facility cannot exceed ten kilowatts. Larger applications will be reviewed on a case by case basis. The Net Metering Policy is only intended for residential properties that are owner occupied, not to exceed a three family home.
