Connexus Energy promotes the use of member-owned generation for peak shaving. When demand is high, Connexus Energy will send a signal to your generator to run up to 12 hours. Members receive a credit based on the demand, which is reduced at the time of the system peak.
Customers qualify for monthly guaranteed credit on your electric bill for standby generation, for a period of seven years. The credit, based on monthly curtailed demand multiplied by a generation credit, provides a guaranteed credit even during non-control months.
Proper installation of a generator is critical. Connexus Energy partners with qualified, licensed electricians who will safely connect a standby generator to your main power system, completed to National Electric Code requirements and specifications. This will ensure the proper operation of equipment and the safety of customers and employees.
Contact your Connexus Energy business account representative for more information on the Generation Credit Rider program and for additional details on generator installation.
*Connexus Energy will supply SCADA enclosure, meter socket, voltage transformers, and current transformers used for metering only after receipt and approval of interconnection application.
