While Tideland EMC does not offer net metering, we do allow members to interconnect small renewable generating projects (up to 50 kW) with our distribution delivery system. The rate paid to member generators per kilowatt hour (kWh) is comparable to the rate we pay our wholesale power suppliers. All renewable generating systems must be registered with the NC Utilities Commission.
All projects must be pre-approved by Tideland EMC prior to installation so before embarking on a renewable energy project please call marketing manager Heidi Smith at 252.944.2410.
If you are counting on renewable generation rate supplements from NC GreenPower please be advised that they currently have a waiting list of applicants. So please secure a commitment from NC GreenPower before signing an installation contract.
