PRODUCE YOUR OWN ENERGY

CONNECT TO THE GRID WITH DISTRIBUTED GENERATION

DISTRIBUTED GENERATION

WHAT IS IT?
Distributed Generation is a form of renewable energy that allows you to produce some or all of the electricity that you need. You can start producing your own energy by installing solar panels, geothermal heat pumps, utilizing wind or biomass energy, and more. ECEC supports Distributed Generation as a viable and sound means of meeting electric needs of various consumer groups. We have actively participated in the administrative development of Distributed Generation throughout Wisconsin.

Ready to start producing your own energy? Follow the steps to the right!
GET STARTED
  • Fill out and sign the Distributed Generation Interconnection Agreement and return it to our office.
  • Fill out and sign the Distributed Generation Application Form and return it to our office. The installer also needs to sign this.
  • Provide ECEC with proof of the required amount of liability insurance.
  • Provide ECEC with a site plan showing the location of main pieces of equipment, and a schematic diagram of the entire system.
  • Provide ECEC with the technical specifications of the inverter and proof that it is UL 1741 or IEEE 1547 compliant.

In 2005, the State of Wisconsin mandated that by 2015 10% of all power sold must come from renewable resources; wind, biomass or hydroelectric. Help your state be more energy-efficient!
