The Geneva Public Works Department Electric Division requires net metering customers pay for their net meter before the system can be operated in parallel with the grid. This cost varies based on when order is received for the meter. The cost of the meter will be provided at the customer orientation meeting. The meter must be paid for before the Electric Division inspection.
Geneva City Code provides for the net metering of energy only. Customers will not be paid for any energy “pushed” onto the grid. Credits for unused energy are accumulated starting May 1 and continue to be accrued throughout the year. On April 30, any unused energy credits are zero’d out and the accruals start fresh on May 1. These dates coincide with the beginning and end of the City's fiscal year.
The base customer charge will still apply to the account, even if the energy usage is zero for billing purposes.
The Geneva City Code limits the total size of all net metered PV installation on our system to 2 percent of the previous years peak system demand. Currently that is a limit of about 1600 kW. Individual installation sizes are limited by service entrance rating and other factors.
