Solar Energy

Please contact SVEC before beginning construction on a solar project.

Members interested in generating power for their own use through a net metering facility such as a solar photovoltaic system, biomass, etc., may contact the Cooperative for interconnection instructions and net metering rules.

Net Metering means the difference in the applicable billing period between the amount of electricity supplied by the Cooperative compared to the amount of electricity generated by the respective member that is delivered to the Cooperative.

In months where the member’s power system generates more power than the member uses, the cooperative credits (banks) the excess power. The credits are carried forward to the next month’s billing.

At the end of the calendar year, any credit (banked power) can be paid out in accordance with the tariff or if the member desires, the first billing of the new year will be credited for the dollar amount from the previous year’s banked power.
