If you are a Customer whom installed solar before November 20, 2018, you are operating under the City’s Distributed Generation Rate Program, and this arrangement will continue (you are grandfathered) for up to 10-years, until November 21, 2028.
If you’d rather be under the NEM Program, you have the option to switch over. Here's how:
- Complete, sign, and date the Transition Request Form.
- Please allow the City 30 days to verify your information. If we have questions or see any issues, we'll get in touch with you.
- Once the application is deemed valid, you will be sent a copy of the "Interconnection and Net Energy Metering A-1 Agreement" to review and sign. A sample of the Agreement is available for review.
- The City will examine your electric meter to see if it needs to be switched out (to meet the technical requirements of the NEM Program). If it does, the City will do so at no cost.
IMPORTANT: The option to move to the NEM Program expires at the close of business November 23, 2020, or when the NEM Program is suspended or terminated, whichever comes first. You must have your valid transition request and NEM contract signed by the expiration date of this option in order for your request to be processed.
Your request will be processed in the order received. You will be placed in NEM A-1 or in NEM A-2, whichever is open at the time your request is deemed valid. A reminder: NEM A-1 is first-come first-served and is expected to fill up fast.
Once your paperwork is in order, and you have the right electric meter, your request will be implemented on a prospective basis starting on your next billing statement.
