  1. Determine if solar is right for you.

    If you're eligible to sell power back to SCE&G, we can start the process immediately and handle everything over the phone.

  2. Choose a program.

Net metering provides one way for customers who generate their own renewable electricity to reduce the power they need for their homes. Customers receive a credit that you can rollover for any excess energy that you generate.
Renewable energy is electricity that is produced from natural resources, including the sun, wind, water and organic matter. Renewable energy resources provide clean energy and are readily replenished by nature.
There are many options (solar, wind, hydro, even biomass), so there is no set price. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Website is a good starting point for customers looking for more information. You may also get a cost estimate for your solar installation using PVWatts on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) website.
Yes. For residential customers, the generator output capacity cannot exceed your maximum household demand or 20KW, whichever is less. For small commercial customers, the generator output capacity cannot exceed the maximum demand of your business or 100KW, whichever is less.
The net metering program is intended to help customers generate power to cover some (or all) of their household or business energy requirements. Annually, on November 1, unused net metering credits that have rolled over month to month will reset or zero out under the company’s current net metering rider.  The original reset date was June 1.  That date was changed to November 1 at the request of our customers to allow them to take advantage of using their net metering credits during the peak summer months. 
For an application for interconnection, please call SCE&G Energy Information Services toll-free at 1-866-660-3705. Since you will need to coordinate the installation of your renewable generator with SCE&G, we appreciate early notification.
Not at this time. However, the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) is a comprehensive, user-friendly and free source of information on state, local, utility and selected federal incentives that promote renewable energy. Access the site to view a list of renewable energy incentives available in any U.S. state you choose.

Palmetto Clean Energy gives customers the option to support the development of renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, hydro, and biomass. Participating customers contribute directly to their local utility and the utility then passes all funds to Palmetto Clean Energy, Inc., a South Carolina non-profit corporation with tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the U. S. Internal Revenue Code.
