Accommodating Alternative Energy Options

We encourage our members to take advantage of solar panel technology, wind energy turbines and other small power-production equipment. PEC offers net metering for interconnected generation equipment, routing power through a single meter that measures the PEC-delivered electricity you receive and subtracts the amount of electricity exported by your equipment. Find more information about System Interconnection in the Alternative Energy Options section.
