We are committed to supporting distributed generation projects within our service area. Whether you are a customer considering distributed generation or you are an experienced contractor, we can help you learn more about distributed generation and guide you through the application process.

What is Distributed Generation?

Distributed generation is generally a small electrical production facility that provides electricity to a home or business, with excess electricity sold to a utility. These production facilities can generate electricity from a variety of energy sources, including wind, farm waste, water or sunlight.

Our customers can receive permission to connect their energy source to our electrical system and sell excess generation to us. To do so, customers, or their contractors, need to complete an application and follow a series of steps to ensure their system conforms to our standards and is safely connected.

What is Community Distributed Generation?

Community distributed generation allows an electrical production facility up to 5MW, such as a solar farm project, to share benefits through a subscription with residential and business participants who otherwise are not able to participate in solar benefits. Please visit our community distributed generation web page to learn more.

Distributed Generation Application Process

Application for interconnection of distributed generation can be submitted via our online portal. Once you have submitted an application, you can view your application online through a secure login ID and password.

Want to generate your own electricity?

Whether this is your first project or you are a seasoned professional, we can help you get connected!

We've included the information needed to set up either a small or large distributed generation project at your home or business location.
