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

With the introduction of SmartHub, PEC's new online account management portal, members with interconnected service can keep track of their net use via My Usage. The Net Meter Analysis graph in My Usage displays consumption, generation and net use for interconnected meters.
Before installing your generating equipment, please refer to PEC's interconnection process.
