Please contact Jackson Electric before committing to the purchase and install of a distributed generation system. Our member services department will review Jackson Electric's policies, procedures and fees with you so that you are aware and understand each of these before you put a deposit down on a system installation.
Distributed Generation (DG) systems under 20 kW, such as wind turbines and solar electric arrays, can be interconnected and net metered under Jackson Electric Cooperative's DG program. Contact Jackson Electric to request a Distributed Generation Interconnection Agreement for systems 20 kW or less, a Distributed Generation Application Form for systems 20 kW or less, and a wiring affidavit. These forms must be completed and signed before interconnection. Member will be billed for net meter, labor to set the meter, and system commissioning.
DG systems larger than 20 kW nameplate AC rating, but under 40 kW, may be interconnected but will not qualify for net metering and the entire electrical production will be purchased by Jackson Electric Cooperative at the Dairyland Power Cooperative's avoided cost rate. Generation is not used for consumption and will be fed back to Jackson Electric's service lines.
Please contact Jackson Electric for DG systems larger than 40 kW nameplate AC rating.
No incentives are available for DG systems interconnected with Jackson Electric Cooperative's distribution system.
