Orcas Power and Light (OPALCO), an electric cooperative serving Washington’s San Juan Islands, provides a performance-based incentive for residential and commercial members who generate energy from photovoltaics, wind, micro-hydroelectric and other small-scale renewable energy sources. The Member Owned Renewable Energy (MORE) Program is funded by voluntary member donations to provide a production credit to local renewable member generators.
Incentive payments will be paid per kilowatt hour (kWh) of production, with a rate based on the year in which the system is interconnected. In 2014, incentive rates were adjusted to accommodate faster growth in MORE installations than voluntary contributions.
