Farmers Electric Cooperative offers a production incentive to members that install qualifying wind and solar electricity generating systems. Customer-generators owning a qualifying grid-tied solar and wind energy systems are eligible for a $0.125 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) production incentive (up to 100% of monthly energy usage) for up to 10 years. Generation in excess of monthly usage will be credited to the customer-generator at a rate of $0.06 per kWh.
This is a buy-all, sell-all arrangement where the customer-generator purchases all of their electricity from the utility at the normal retail rate, and sells the entire output of their qualifying system to the utility. As a result, this arrangement requires two meters; one to measure the renewable energy system's production and one to measure the electricity used by the home or business.
The system must be operational and in service on or after January 1, 2008, and the customer-generator must participate in the utility's Green Power Project in order to qualify.
