Are there any costs?

The City does not charge a fee for filing or approval for a net metering application. However, the cost of the net meter is charged to the customer seeking interconnection and must be paid before the interconnection is approved. The Public Works Electric Division will provide the cost of the meter at the time the net metering application is submitted. Building permit fees are handled through the City's Building Division.
