Net Metering & Renewable Incentive Payment Program

Tanner Electric Cooperative currently makes Net Metering available to its members under the provision of Washington's State's RCW 80.60

Net metering is a low-cost, easily administered method for utilities to encourage member investment in renewable energy technologies. Net metering enables members to use their own generation to offset their consumption over a billing period. This is accomplished by allowing their electric meters to turn backwards when they generate electricity in excess of their demand.

Net metering is currently available to residential customers who receive electrical service directly from Tanner Electric Cooperative. You must install and interconnect an eligible generating system not exceeding 100 kilowatts. The generating system must be located on your premises and be interconnected to Tanner Electric Cooperative’s electrical system. All required documentation (application, contract, building permits, and certification, etc.) must be completed and written approval received from Tanner Electric Cooperative prior to interconnecting your generating system to Tanner’s electrical grid.
