To help meet our customers' electricity needs, Pacific Power is committed to using reliable, cost-effective, renewable energy sources. We partner with our customers to ensure safe and reliable interconnection of customer-owned private generation systems with the electric grid.
Before you install private solar
Investing in a small generation system may require a large upfront expense and future maintenance commitment. The checklist below can help you determine if a small generation system is right for you.
Private energy credits & net metering
Small generation systems are monitored through a net meter, which allows us to track the excess solar power you produce and how much electricity you use.
If you want to generate electricity from renewable or nonrenewable resources to cover a portion of your needs, but still want the reassurance that Pacific Power's system will be ready to serve, then a Partial Requirements agreement may be right for you.
If you are planning a larger generation project – greater than 25 kW – and plan to sell power to Pacific Power, information is available on qualifying facilities, grid connection requests and market-based incentives.
