As a public utility, our net metering service is a regulatory responsibility and we are required to follow the interconnection and net energy metering regulations in our service regions. The information below will help you understand and comply with these regulations. For customers wishing to interconnect to the electric grid, Title 15 of the D.C. Municipal Regulations (DCRM) defines the interconnection and net metering regulations and application processes Pepco follows. Chapter 40 sets out Small Generator Interconnection Rules, and Chapter 9 sets out the Net Energy Metering Rules and Pepco’s net metering application process.
To ensure your successful interconnection with the electric grid, we recommend that you become familiar with our interconnection application and agreements, forms, tariffs and riders, along with the process steps, before soliciting a contractor. For customers who wish to feed generation back into the grid and receive bill credits, a fully completed and signed D.C. Customer Net Energy Metering Contract (NEM Contract) also is required and a net-capable meter must be installed at your premise.
There are currently no restricted circuits in our Pepco region. This map shows general areas where circuits are restricted. For more information, contact our GPC team.
Customers interested in installing large generating facilities and selling power directly to the grid will need wholesale power purchase agreements. PJM Interconnection is a regional transmission organization (RTO) that coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity in all or parts of Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. Our Green Power Connection Team will gladly to refer you to the department within Pepco that handles wholesale power purchase agreements.
