Payment arrangements for RE generation are available through a periodic RFP. However, owners of small PV (5 kW or less) and wind (10 kW or less) may apply to receive program incentives at any time. Amts. listed here represent both the REC payment and the avoided cost payment for 100% of the system output for < 10 kW. NC GreenPower pays the REC portion and utility pays the electricity portion. Produdtion payments are funded exclusively by voluntary contributions from NC electric customers; thereofere, NC GreenPower does not provide guaranteed contracts to generators.

Incentive/Summary '''''Note: NC GreenPower issued an RFP in
'''''Note: NC GreenPower issued an RFP in December 2013, seeking up to 20,000 MWh of renewable energy credits (RECs) through a purchase with either a one or two year term. Green power is defined for NC GreenPower as renewable energy generated in North Carolina by solar photovoltaics, wind, small hydro of 10 MW or less, and biomass resources (methane from landfills, animal waste or agricultural waste, wood waste) which is delivered to North Carolina’s electrical supply. Bids in response to the RFP are due January 22, 2014. See the web site above for more information. ''''' NC GreenPower, a statewide green power program designed to encourage the use of renewable energy in North Carolina, offers production payments for grid-tied electricity generated by solar, wind, small hydro (10 megawatts or less) and biomass resources. Payment arrangements for electricity generated by most renewable energy systems may be available by submitting proposals for consideration when NC GreenPower issues an RFP. However, owners of small solar energy systems (5 kW or less) and small wind energy systems (10 kilowatts or less) may currently apply to receive program incentives at any time. Owners of small solar energy systems or wind-energy systems are encouraged to review and fill out an [ online application], available on the NC GreenPower web site. Note that customer-generators who choose to net meter are ''not'' eligible to participate in the NC GreenPower Program. Generators are required to enter into power-purchase agreements with their North Carolina electric utility and with NC GreenPower. However, because premiums paid to NC GreenPower are funded exclusively by voluntary contributions from North Carolina electric customers, NC GreenPower does not provide guaranteed contracts to generators. Production incentives are based on the amount expected to make the installation of renewable-energy systems approach economic feasibility. The incentives, which include payments from utility power-purchase agreements, are made on a per-kWh basis and vary by technology. Owners of small solar-electric systems enrolled in NC GreenPower receive $0.06/kilowatt-hour (kWh) from the program, plus approximately $0.04/kWh from their utility under the power-purchase agreement, for a total production payment of about $0.12/kWh. Owners of small wind-energy systems receive $0.09/kWh from the program, plus approximately $0.04/kWh from their utility, for a total production payment of about $0.13/kWh.* NC GreenPower is an independent, nonprofit organization created by state-government officials, electric utilities, nonprofit organizations, consumers, renewable-energy advocates and other stakeholders. It began operation in October 2003 as the first statewide green-power program in the United States. North Carolina's three investor-owned utilities -- Dominion North Carolina Power, Duke Energy and Progress Energy -- and many of the state's municipal utilities and electric cooperatives are participating in the NC GreenPower Program. ''* Some North Carolina utilities charge an interconnection fee of approximately $4.00 per month for systems under 10 kW.''
