System Interconnection Connect your power source to the PEC grid

We encourage our members to take advantage of solar panel technology, wind energy turbines and other small power-production equipment.

If you’ve purchased power-generation technology and are ready to put it to work, please contact us at least 60 days before interconnection and send in your Interconnection Agreement. Be sure to review our updated Interconnection Policy before completing the agreement.

Net Metering for Interconnection

Interconnected service uses net metering, which routes power through a single meter that measures the PEC-delivered electricity you receive and subtracts the amount of electricity exported by your equipment. This saves you the expense of purchasing an additional meter and allows you to receive a credit for any surplus electricity. Surplus electricity above what you consume during your billing period is credited to you at PEC’s avoided cost, which is the fuel cost, with no capacity component. Our current avoided cost rate is posted at right.

For more information about our Interconnection program, contact the district engineering section at your local PEC office.
