Thinking About Going Green?
Wind & Solar Energy Interconnection
We advise our members to conduct a thorough investigation of the benefits of alternative energy (wind/solar) generation before making an investment. The investments in alternative energy systems are not small and we want to be sure our members have fully evaluated the paybacks that may be realized from an installation.
Your alternative energy system installation will be required to meet all applicable National Electric Safety Codes and National Electric Codes. One of the requirements is that protection is present that will automatically disconnect your system from the utility in the event of a power failure on the utility side of the meter.
