Please call our Engineering /Planning Director, 402 564 2821, before proceeding with any renewable energy generation projects. This will ensure that there won’t be any unintended charges/set backs.
To qualify as a new installation the following conditions and understanding must be met by the generator
Installation must be located on premises that are owned, operated, leased or otherwise controlled by the retail customer.
Installation must be intended to primarily offset part, or all, of the retail customer’s requirements for electric energy at the location of the generation and not at another location.
Meets all safety and performance requirements of Cornhusker Public Power District and applicable federal, state, and local regulations and interconnection standards.
A single meter or smart metering system shall be used to measure the flow of energy to and from the retail customer. If the customer’s meter is not capable of measuring the flow of electricity in both directions, Cornhusker Public Power District will provide and install such a meter or will utilize the use of a smart metering system that serves the same function. Energy use and energy generated will be calculated by the meter.
How bills and generation credits are calculated
The customer simply generates behind the meter and uses the generated energy when available. Excess generation flows back to Cornhusker Public Power District’s distribution system and the customer receives credit according to the applicable rate in effect at the time.
A retail customer receiving service under this policy will be subject to the same retail rate schedule as those retail customers who are not generators. Retail customers subject to this policy shall remain responsible for all other charges associated with the retail rate schedule including, but not limited to monthly minimum charges and demand charges.
