Lincoln Electric System will make a one-time capacity payment to the owner of the renewable generation based on the contribution of peak reduction by the renewable resource, valued at a traditional resource cost of $1,000 per kW-AC. Capacity increases or additions in future years will be eligible for the capacity payment. The total amount customers can receive is determined by the type and efficiency of the technology installed.
Customer-generators may also qualify for an incentive payment based on the amount of electricity generated by the renewable energy system that goes to the electricity grid.
