The District of Summerland has relaunched their Distributed Generation (Net Metering) Program! This program allows customers with small (30kW or less), inverter–based, distributed generation (DG) solar PV systems or wind turbines to be connected to the Summerland Distribution System (Summerland’s electric grid).
How does the Summerland Net Metering Program work?
Summerland electrical utility customers who participate in the program will be able to offset all of their own electricity needs as well as sell any excess energy produced, to the District of Summerland.
If you produce more than you consume in any given month, your excess energy will be “banked” and rolled forward to the following month where it will be applied at the retail rate (Tier 1) for electricity. At the end of the calendar year, any remaining credits will be purchased by the District of Summerland at the wholesale rate.
During the application process, the District will provide an estimate for the bi-directional meter installation which is typically between $400-$600. This fee must be paid before the system is approved to be connected to the Summerland Distribution System.
Full details on the program and the current retail rates (under Fees & Charges Bylaw) can be found here.
Here at SkyFire Energy, we will help you navigate through the applications, take care of all the paperwork and manage your project from A to Z to ensure it is a hassle-free process for you!
