We support renewable energy and partner with our customers
to ensure safe and reliable interconnection of renewable energy into the
Title 15 of the D.C. Municipal Regulations (DCMR) defines
the interconnection and net energy metering regulations and application
processes Pepco follows. Small generator technologies that qualify for
interconnection with our system include solar (photovoltaic or “PV”), wind, biomass, anaerobic digestion, geothermal electric, fuel cells
using renewable sources, and cogeneration and microturbines. The
two-part interconnection application process connects your renewable generator system to
the electric grid. This complex process takes approximately 80 business days
from when Pepco receives your complete application to when Pepco issues your
Authorization to Operate, including the time during which your contractor
installs your solar array or other renewable generating system.
For customers in the District who to wish to feed excess
generation back onto the grid and receive bill credits, a fully completed and
signed D.C. Customer Net Energy Metering Contract also is required and a
net-capable meter will be installed at your premise.
Here is information to guide you through the process.
