Terms, conditions and other restrictions

1 Please review the plan’s Electricity Facts Label for details regarding renewable content.

2 The credit is exclusive of any monthly base charge, applicable taxes and fees or other charges. Credits for excess energy are capped at the monthly usage from the grid. The credit per kWh for the excess energy you send to the grid will be the same per kWh energy rate we charge for the electricity plan, including utility delivery charges. It may take up to 3 billing cycles after receiving Permission to Operate (PTO) from your utility to begin receiving credits. To receive bill credits, customer must have solar panels at the utility service address and an active interconnection agreement with the utility (or TDSP). Customer must have a meter installed and configured by their TDSP that measures the inflow and outflow of electricity to and from their home.

Requests processed after 5:00 p.m. Central Time will be connected the next business day. Same-day service is offered Monday through Saturday, weather permitting, where an existing meter is in place. No connections on holidays. Enrollment and permit requirements must be met before a request can be processed. Additional charges apply.
