If you own qualifying generation, such as solar or wind that is installed at your residence or business, you may use the energy output at your site to offset your electric bill. If at any time your system produces more energy than required to power your home or building, the excess energy may be applied as a credit to future bills. This process is known as net-metering.
All generators that intend to net meter are fully responsible for adhering to all utility requirements, applicable federal rules and regulations, state and local ordinances and regulations adopted by the North Carolina Utilities Commission and the South Carolina Public Service Commission (the governing bodies of regulated utilities in the Carolinas). This website does not establish a legal or binding arrangement; it is intended solely to provide access to general information about potential options that may be available through Duke Energy Progress. Generators are responsible for consulting with appropriate legal and energy professionals in determining if generation ownership is the right choice and for assistance in navigating applicable requirements and procedures.

If the customer receives electric service under a schedule other than a time-of-use schedule with demand rates, any renewable energy credit or “green tags” shall be provided by the customer at no cost to Duke Energy Progress.
