Net Metering

Mason County PUD No. 1 offers Net Metering to customers who wish to generate their own electricity with fuel cells or solar, wind or hydro powered electric systems of 25 kilowatts or less in generating capacity. Once Mason County PUD No. 1 reviews and approves a customer-owned electric generation system, net metering allows a customer to be connected to the utility’s distribution system. Any excess electricity generated by a customer can then be credited to the customer’s next bill at the same rate they are charged for electricity.

Some renewable energy is also available for incentive rebates from the Washington State Department of Revenue. If you are interested in participating in our Net Metering Program, please download and print the nine documents in the Related Documents section on the right and follow the instructions on the Checklist to Initiate Net Metering. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact PUD No. 1.
