If you are considering installing solar, wind, or another renewable energy source at your home or business, please know that there are policies and procedures in place that are required for a customer owned distributed generation resource (25 KW and under) to be interconnected with our District facilities.
Before you sign any documents with a contractor, please be sure to visit with us first. We want to be sure you are aware of any upcoming changes and have the correct information in regards to how a renewable energy source will affect your service/billing as well as how it affects our system and what we require.
Click the links (>>) below to follow along with the procedures customers must complete to be interconnected with District facilities:
>> Do Your Research and Become Informed
Learn about Nebraska legislative requirements and CKPPD’s policies. Be sure to acquire your billing history to calculate how much of your annual electrical consumption you would like to replace with renewable generation and to appropriately size the equipment needed. Talk to reputable and skilled professionals that will help you install the system you are interested in.
>> Complete the Cedar-Knox PPD Interconnection Application
It is important to complete this document early in the process so that the District is aware of your intentions. This must be filled out, signed, and turned in. You should allow for up to 60 days to be approved.
>> Begin Construction
Once the application is approved, equipment can be purchased and construction of the interconnection can begin.
>> Complete an Electrical Inspection
Once construction is complete an inspection by both the State of Nebraska Electrical Division (NESD) and the District is required. Your electrician should notify the NESD. Once the District is notified by the NESD, an inspection by the District will follow.
>> Sign Interconnection and Service Agreement
Both parties sign the Interconnection and Service Agreement and customer must provide proof of $1,000,000 liability insurance. The District requires a current copy of the insurance coverage at all times.
>> Begin Operation
Once the Distributed Generation is operational, any net excess power per month will be credited to the customer’s account per the following rate schedule.
NOTE — Any installation, interconnection, and operation of a distributed generation resource without the proper applications and agreements signed by both parties shall be grounds for immediate disconnection of the District’s service to the customer without constituting a breach of contract.
For any questions or if you are interested in a generation source greater than 25 KW, please call our office at 402-254-6291.
Pursuant to State Statute 70-2005, enacted in 2009, Cedar-Knox Public Power District must publish an annual net metering report.
