Performance Based Incentive (PBI) Step Down Chart:
For Net Energy Metering Plus customers, PBI rates will be set based on the pricing available at each tier of total customer solar production. As participation (on a first-come-first-serve basis) increases, the PBI decreases. You may apply to reserve your PBI rate by completing Step #1 of application process.

Community Solar — Coming Mid-2016
Community solar allows you (homeowners and renters) the option to buy a portion of a solar farm without installing solar at your home. Community solar arrays, sometimes referred to a solar farm or solar garden, are centralized SCE&G solar facilities with individual panels available for purchase by customers who receive credits on their electricity bill for the power produced.
SCE&G will offer community solar beginning in mid-2016. Customers will be able to purchase panels in a solar farm and receive a corresponding pro rata share of energy output through a monthly bill credit. Participants will receive a $0.10 per kWh for 20 years. The cost per panel will be comparable to the cost of installing rooftop solar.
