The City is accepting applications under its NEM A-2 Program where Customer-Generators can benefit from producing their own electricity with distributed generation equipment, such as rooftop solar. The Customer-Generator is responsible for the City's cost to purchase and install an electric meter that satisfies the technical requirements of the NEM A-2 program. The City will determine if a meter replacement is required after a NEM A-2 application is received. If the existing meter satisfies the technical requirements, no meter-related charges will apply. The meter must be capable of measuring the C-G’s kWh consumption from the City's electric grid, and in the event the energy generated by the equipment exceeds the energy consumed, measuring the kWh that the City receives back to the electric grid from the C-G’s equipment. All energy (kWh) delivered and received after the C-G serves its own instantaneous load with its equipment shall be measured by the multi-register meter. When you consume what you produce, you avoid paying retail electric rates. When you produce more than you need, the City
will compensate you at the Net Surplus Compensation Rate for any energy
received, and when you produce too little, the City will apply retail rates for
the energy delivered to you based on applicable rates and rate structures. Billing is conducted on a monthly basis.
