The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center are excited to announce that a new, modernized DSIRE is under construction. The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in December 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new version of DSIRE but are also maintaining the content of the current version of DSIRE. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this transition. We hope you are as excited for December as we are!

Summary:

In 1996, Ashland adopted a net metering program that includes simple interconnection guidelines. The program encourages the adoption of renewable-energy systems by committing the city to purchase, at 1.25 times the highest residential rate block, up to 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of net excess generation (NEG) that remains at the end of the year in December from customers that generate electricity using small wind turbines or small solar-energy systems.  Any NEG above 1,000 kWh is paid out at the wholesale rate.  Prior to the year-end reconciliation, NEG rolls-over and is credited to the customer's next bill at the retail rate.  This program goes beyond the state net metering requirements, as the state net metering law only requires NEG to be purchased at avoided cost or credited as a kilowatt-hour credit to the next month's billing period.
