Would you like to learn more about Renewable Energy? Are you interested in installing your own generation system, but not sure how to start? Many EnergyUnited members have the same questions you do. For this reason, we are pleased to present this page dedicated not only to helping answer your renewable energy questions, but to help you get started on the path to generating your own energy.
EnergyUnited currently offers three options for interconnecting a small renewable energy generation system to our electric system:
This is commonly called a Buy-All, Sell-All arrangement. There are two meters: one for your home measuring everything you use, and another measuring everything produced by your generation system. EnergyUnited pays you a wholesale rate for the energy you produce.
A Net Metering system uses only one meter. Your generation system connects into your main electrical panel and you use the energy yourself. Any excess you produce flows back to the EnergyUnited system and is credited to your account. See the Net Metering rider for further details.
This option is available only to residential members with generation systems larger than 10 kW. This option allows you to interconnect a system into your home and use the energy you produce yourself. You do not receive any credit for excess generation. Residential systems above 10 kW are not eligible for Net Metering, so this option still allows you to connect and use energy from a generation system.
