If you’re one of the more than 270,000 members that receive energy from Pedernales Electric Cooperative, your utility wants to reward you with net metering for investing in alternative energy solutions!

When you connect your qualifying solar power system to the PEC electrical grid, you get the added benefit of being a part of their net metering program. So if your system produces any surplus electricity, you’ll receive an energy credit for use later (like when the Sun isn’t out). You can also take advantage of this credit on a rainy day when your system is not producing at 100% capacity. Should your system produce more electricity than you consume for a given billing period, the difference is credited to you at PEC’s avoided cost.

The avoided cost is simply the cost of fuel, and changes on an annual basis according to the Co-ops audited financial statements. As of June 1, 2016, the avoided costs for surplus electricity is $0.0485 per kWh.

PEC’s Service Area

PEC operates in a territory larger than the state of Massachusetts (nearly 8,100 square miles) and delivers electricity to thousands of homes in Central Texas and the surrounding Texas Hill Country. If you’re you not sure who your electricity provider is, check out this map of their service area.

Residents of cities like Buda, Dripping Springs, Wimberley, Marble Falls, Johnson City, San Marcos, Georgetown, and Kyle all fall within PEC territory, but there are several other surrounding utilities.

Before installing your generating equipment, please refer to PEC’s interconnection process.

Be sure to double check you’re not within Austin Energy territory, because if you are you might be eligible to take advantage of the Austin Energy Solar Rebate!
