If you understand net metering and would like to enter into an agreement, please go through these 5 steps and we’ll get your system interconnected to Clearwater Power’s grid quickly and safely.
Solar continues to be the most popular form of generation for net metering. The size and scope of your system depend greatly on your energy needs and your location. (Net metering is not limited to solar generation; other sources include wind, hydro, and fuel cells.) Visit the Let’s Go Solar website to learn more.
There are a few steps to approve your system and connect it to Clearwater Power’s grid. If you can answer yes to these three questions, then you are ready to apply for interconnection to the Clearwater Power system. Nearly all residential-scale systems will qualify for this streamlined approval process and we can usually get back to you within 1 business day.
- Does your proposed system use an inverter-based interconnection which is certified by an independent laboratory to meet the requirements of UL 1741?
- Is this system connected through a single-phase transformer?
- Is the system 25 kW or smaller in size?
If you answered yes to all three questions, you are ready to move on to step 3. If you have questions, please contact us at (208) 743-1501.
The form blow begins your application process for a net metering agreement. It is intended to provide Clearwater Power with all of the necessary information about your project including size and the location of disconnect switches.
This will arrive within 2 business days of completing your information form.
Once your project is built and has passed your state electrical inspection, our technician will arrive for a safety inspection and install your bi-directional meter, and you can begin net metering the power you generate.
