Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC), a municipal electric utility, allows net metering for residential photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 20 kilowatts (kW) in capacity and for nonresidential PV systems up to one megawatt (MW) in capacity. Any net excess generation credits carry over indefinitely as "billed energy" on the customer's utility bill, and customers will receive a check for the full credit value upon termination of their account. OUC will furnish and install the necessary meters to monitor customers' on-site energy production and use.
Customers must participate in OUC's Solar Pilot Program to be eligible for net metering and, as a result, transfer ownership of any environmental attributes or renewable energy certificates (REC) associated with the net-metered system to OUC. The terms of interconnection and net metering are specified in OUC's Solar Service Agreements (SSA) forResidential Customers and for Commercial Customers.
