STEP 4: COMPLETE A NET METERING APPLICATION
Net metering is a reference to a Missouri state statute (Net Metering and Easy Connection Act. Statute: Section 386.890. RSMo.) that requires utility companies to pay their members/customers for the excess energy their renewable (wind, solar and/or hydroelectric) systems produce that goes back onto the grid.
You can start the net metering process by submitting the appropriate application, as well as ensuring the technology you choose meets requirements. It is likely you will have to get information from your solar vendor in order to complete the application.
Upon receipt of the application and other required documentation, our engineering team will review the application for approval. If your application is denied, PCEC will provide information as to the requirements for approval. Further interconnection studies may need to be executed depending on system size and requirements.
Once approved by PCEC, the Interconnection Agreement shall be executed and any costs due to the cooperative will need to be paid prior to implementation. Prior to physical interconnection, a PCEC representative will inspect for proper operation and installation.
