Co-Generation with Renewable Energy Sources
There are several considerations involved when installing co-generation facilities. Below are some informational documents you can review:
There are two rate riders available for members installing co-generation facilities. If you are interested in installing co-generation facilities, please contact our office to meet with a representative and discuss the project you have in mind.
Net Metering Rider
Refers to the use of one meter to track the net electricity consumed from the cooperative's source and the member's source.
Parallel Generation Rider
Applies if the member chooses to have separate metering. One meter registers electricity consumed from the cooperative, as normally done.
