Utility Resources

Whether you are seriously considering installing PV at your home or business or are just curious about solar, one of the first places you should call is your local utility. They are the experts when it comes to providing reliable electric service; and unless you are going off the grid, connection of your new solar photo voltaic system to your electric utility is unavoidable. It is their responsibility to ensure a safe and reliable system, so learning the rules that apply to you are important. While the solar contractor of your choice should know the ropes and details of solar, don’t get caught. Your utility is a critical long term partner. In addition to safely connecting your solar equipment to the grid, you will want to speak with them about your options for selling power back to the grid. Call them today, and they can walk you through the process. You can avoid any surprises when you are ready to go live with your solar project by including them early in the process.
