To help meet our customers' electricity needs, Rocky Mountain Power is committed to using reliable, cost-effective, renewable energy sources.
We partner with our customers to ensure safe and reliable interconnection of customer-owned private generation systems with the electric grid.
Before you install private solar
Investing in a small generation system may require a large upfront expense and future maintenance commitment. The checklist below can help you determine if a small generation system is right for you.
Private energy credits & net metering
Small generation systems are monitored through a net meter, which allows us to track the excess solar power you produce and how much electricity you use.
Utah net metering update
On Dec. 9, 2016, the Utah Public Service Commission issued a ruling to delay a decision on when new net metering rates would come into effect. This allows time for a mutually agreeable solution to be reached.
Other options to support solar and renewable energy
If you don't want to or can't afford to install solar panels at your home or business, you can support renewable energy through our Blue Sky program. In Utah, we're offering a new option for customers to subscribe to energy from a local solar plant.
If you want to generate electricity from renewable or nonrenewable resources to cover a portion of your needs, but still want the reassurance that Rocky Mountain Power's system will be ready to serve, then a Partial Requirements agreement may be right for you.
If you are planning a larger generation project – greater than 25 kW – and plan to sell power to Rocky Mountain Power, information is available on qualifying facilities, grid connection requests and market-based incentives.
