Photovoltaic systems generate electricity for home use and excess power is returned to Clay's distribution system. Using a special meter, the co-op records the amount of electricity returned to its system.

NOTE: Clay Electric Cooperative is experiencing supply chain issues due to circumstances with our suppliers, and we are currently out of bidirectional net meters. These delays are expected to last throughout the rest of 2023, with unknown restocking capacities going forward. Please know that we are making every effort to complete all requests as soon as possible in the order in which they are received.
