Interconnection/Net Metering

If a member decides to purchase a renewable power system for their home, the process to interconnect that system with Laurens Electric is as follows: The member must agree to meet Laurens Electric’s standards for interconnection.

Once the member agrees to meet those standards the next step is for the member to submit an interconnection application with $100 application fee, line diagram and proof of insurance.

Once Laurens Electric approves the interconnection application, next the member will sign an interconnection agreement with Laurens Electric and then be able to move forward with the installation of the renewable power system. After installation, once the system is certified, Laurens Electric will complete the interconnection.

Finally, the member will then be set up with net metering.
