In 1999, Oregon enacted a law enabling utilities to offer net-metering service to their customers, or in this case, electric cooperatives to its members. Net-metering facilities are certain generating resources with a capacity of up to 25 kilowatts, and can be hydro, wind, solar, or fuel-cell technologies.
Download our Net Metering Brochure (PDF) which describes the Cooperative’s requirements for the interconnection of net-metering facilities.
Our primary objective is that all net-metering facilities be interconnected safely and in accordance with all applicable codes and regulations without adverse effects to the electrical system or to other members. A secondary objective is that the costs associated with net-metering services are borne by those members requesting this service.
Also, the net-metering facilities must be located on the customer’s premises and used to serve the customer’s electrical demand (load).
