Non-incentivized solar through net metering is one of our “own your own” solar options and is available to residential and business customers within our service areas. When the system is non-incentivized, you retain the renewable attributes of renewable energy you produce and you may register the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and/or claim that you produce and use renewable energy from your solar system.
Owning your own system provides the benefit from net metering, which allows you to “credit back” excess generation onto your bill to ensure you receive the full value of all your generation. If excess energy generation exceeds energy consumption you will receive payment for the excess. In South Dakota, the buy back rates for excess generation are paid at the wholesale rate. Please contact your local South Dakota office for further details.
Typically the solar installer will submit a solar application on your behalf, but if you are interested in registering your own application, simply log into the Solar Application Portal below.
