We support renewable energy and partner
with our customers to ensure safe and reliable interconnection of renewable
energy into the electric grid.
Customers who generate their own
electricity with renewable energy sources can interconnect with the electric
grid and receive bill credits for excess generation. A special net-capable
meter at the customer’s premise measures the energy a customer uses off the
grid and the excess generation the renewable system provides onto the grid, and
calculates the difference or “net.”
Atlantic City Electric follows and complies
with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Annotated
Code 14:8 for Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, Net
Metering, and Interconnection. Small generator technologies that qualify for
interconnection with our system include solar (photovoltaic or “PV”), rooftop
solar, wind, biomass, anaerobic digestion, geothermal electric, fuel cells
using renewable sources, and micro-combined heat and power (up to 30 kW).
Recently, innovative new net energy metering programs have become available for aggregated
The two-part interconnection
application process connects your renewable generator
system to the electric grid. This complex process takes approximately 73
business days from when Atlantic City Electric receives your complete
application to when Atlantic City Electric issues your Authorization to
Operate, including the time during which your contractor installs your solar
array or other renewable generating system.
Green Power Connection™ is our process for
facilitating Net Energy Metering (NEM) interconnections. Our dedicated team of
consultants and account coordinators manage the customer’s experience – from
processing applications to resolving issues – for residential and smaller
commercial interconnection projects.
Here is information to guide you through the process.
