Small General Service Net

Availablity
At any point on the Cooperative's interconnected system.

Application
To any member/owner that owns and operates a solar, wind or hydroelectric generating facility with a capacity of not more than twenty-five (25) kilowatts that is located on the member/owner’s premises, is interconnected and operates in parallel with the Cooperative’s existing distribution facilities and is intended primarily to offset part or all of the member/owner’s own electrical requirements measured by the Cooperative at a single metered point of delivery.  Only the member/owner’s electrical loads attached to and served by this single metering point shall be included in the calculation of net metering against any generation produced by the member/owner pursuant to the conditions in this tariff.

A generating facility that is not interconnected to the load side of the member/owner’s said metered point of delivery for electric service shall not be applicable for service under this rate schedule. This schedule is offered in compliance with Wyoming Statutes 37-16-101 thru 104

Definitions
Net Metering means measuring the difference between the electricity supplied by the Cooperative and the electricity generated by an eligible customer-generator and fed back to the electric grid over the applicable billing period.

Monthly Billing
The Electric Service Charge shall be computed in accordance with the Monthly Rate in the applicable standard service tariff.

Special Conditions

  1. If the electricity supplied by the Cooperative, at the immediate interconnection point of the member/owner’s generating facility, exceeds the electricity generated by the member/owner’s generating facility, the prices specified in the Energy Charge section of the Monthly Rate of the applicable standard service tariff shall be applied to the positive balance owed to the Cooperative.
  2. If the electricity supplied by the customer-generator exceeds that supplied by the Cooperative, the Customer shall be billed for the appropriate monthly charges and shall be credited for such net energy with the kilowatt-hour credit appearing on the bill for the following month.
  3. At the beginning of each calendar year, any remaining unused kilowatt-hour credit accumulated during the previous year shall be sold to the Cooperative at the Cooperative’s avoided cost.  The Cooperative’s avoided cost shall be the twelve month average of the “Energy Component” of the Cooperative’s wholesale power rate received from its supplier in the previous calendar year.
  4. The Cooperative shall offer to make available to the customer-generator an energy meter that is capable of registering the flow of electricity in two direction, and may, at its own expense, install one or more additional meters to monitor the flow of electricity in each direction.
  5. The Cooperative shall not charge a customer-generator any additional fee or charge that would increase the customer-generator’s minimum monthly charge to an amount greater than that of other customers of the same class as the customer-generator.
  6. The customer-generator is responsible for all costs associated with its facility and is also responsible for all costs related to any modifications to the facility that may be required by the Cooperative for purposes of safety and reliability.
  7. A Net Metering facility shall meet all applicable safety and performance standards established by the National Electrical Code, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and Underwriters Laboratories.
  8. The customer-generator shall, at its expense, provide lockable switching equipment capable of isolating the net metering facility from the Cooperative's system.  Such equipment shall be approved by the Cooperative and shall be accessible by the Cooperative at all times.
  9. The Cooperative shall not be liable directly or indirectly for permitting or continuing to allow an attachment of a net metering facility, or for the acts or omissions of the customer generator that cause loss or injury, including death, to any third party.

Rules
Service under this Schedule is subject to the General Rules contained in the tariff of which this Schedule is a part, and to those prescribed by regulatory authorities.
