Notify Clay Electric if you receive power from an alternative energy source

The State of Florida requires that Clay Electric keep track of the amount of electricity received via customer-owned alternative energy sources. At present, the co-op has 480 members who own renewable (solar) systems that generate electricity for their homes. These systems generate electricity for home use and excess power is returned to Clay's distribution system. The co-op records, using a special meter, the amount of electricity returned to the co-op's system.

If you own or plan to have one of these systems installed, please make sure you've signed an Interconnection Agreement with Clay Electric. The State of Florida requires that all customers who have systems that are or will be connected to the electrical grid have an Interconnect agreement signed with the receiving utility. It is the member's responsibility to notify Clay that they're operating or plan to operate an alternative energy system. This is important for safety reasons and for billing purposes, and to ensure the member receives proper credit for putting power back into the co-op's distribution system.

Contact the co-op's Energy Services Division for more information.
