Interconnect Wholesale Energy Rate

Interconnection Metering (Greater than 50 kW)

Applicable to members with distributed generation that is greater than 50 kW. The member must have an effective agreement for interconnection with the cooperative, according to Section 600 Interconnection Policy found in the Tariff, and comply with the applicable provisions of Section 600.

Metering Service

The cooperative may install two meters, owned and operated by the cooperative, for the member. The first meter will record total DG production. The second meter will have two registers, one that records energy delivered (Delivered Energy) to the member, and another that records surplus energy returned to the cooperative through DG system overproduction (Received Energy). The cooperative will have access to all of the member’s meter data for billing purposes.

  • Delivered Energy is the total energy delivered to a member from PEC during the billing cycle (member is billed based on Delivered Energy).
  • Received Energy is the total surplus energy received by PEC during the billing cycle from the DG system overproduction (member is given a credit based on Received Energy).
