NEM 1 Program Deadline - June 30

All MID customers who have submitted an NEM 1 solar application prior to December 30, 2016 have until June 30, 2017 to have their system installed and successfully interconnected. All systems that are not successfully interconnected by June 30, 2017 will no longer be eligible for the NEM 1 program and will need to reapply under the NEM 2 program. With the NEM 1 project completion deadline closing in, MID encourages you to contact your solar PV contractor/installer as soon as possible to make them aware of this deadline.

MID Solar PV Net Energy Metering Program- 2.0.

Customers can now apply for the NEM 2 program. Details on the NEM 2 program can be found below. Please refer to the Net Energy Metering Solar PV Interconnection Handbook - NEM 2.0 on application details and procedures. Only complete hard copy application packages will be accepted – no electronic submittals.

Additional solar PV information including applications, service guides, and related forms can be found at in the links below.

For any further questions please contact the MID PV Group at pv@mid.org or (209) 526-7582.

MID must approve projects prior to an interconnection.  Please review the solar handbook and solar electric service rules for all program requirements.

Solar PV systems may also be eligible for federal tax credits which are subject to change (see www.irs.gov).
