Self-generation may be an intriguing financial or environmental opportunity for some of our members. Before purchasing self-generation equipment (solar or wind), members should evaluate if the economics work for their needs. Below is information that may assist in determining if renewable self-generation is a good fit for you.
We strongly encourage our members to take precautions when approached by vendors and to consider the following before committing to purchases:
- Review Pioneer Electric’s Net Metering (S-20-NM) and Parallel Generation (20-PGS-R and 20-PGS-QF) Riders.
- Fully review the terms and conditions of any contract or paperwork from vendors.
- Ensure that vendors/contractors associated with the self-generation project are accredited and insured.
