Peninsula Light Co. offers Net Metering and Renewable Energy Credit to customers who  generate their own electricity. These options apply to the following systems of 100 kilowatts or less in generating capacity:

  1. Solar Systems
  2. Wind Systems
  3. Small Hydro Systems
  4. Fuel Cells
Photovoltaic Modules

Net Metering & Interconnection

The Net Metering and Interconnection Agreement must be signed and returned to PenLight in order to connect the energy producing system to the PenLight electrical distribution system and to receive applicable credits.  Once PenLight reviews and approves the customer-owned electric generation system, the customer may be connected to the utility’s distribution system. Net Metering enables excess electricity generated by the customer-owned system to be credited to the customer’s bill at the same rate they are charged for electricity.
