- Net Metering Application
- Net Metering Policy (The net metering application was lowered to $250, effective December 27, 2016)
Net metering is a service available to members who generate energy on their property from a renewable source connected to GCEA's distribution system and capable of being operated in a safe and reliable manner. Below are examples of how net metering works.
Scenario 1: Your renewable energy system is online and producing enough energy to power all the loads in your home and is sending excess energy back through the meter onto GCEA’s power lines.
Scenario 2: Your renewable energy system is online but is not producing enough energy to power all the loads in your home. You are using all the energy you are producing and some energy from GCEA’s power lines to your home.
To apply for a net-metered account, please review and complete the application at the top of this page. Once you have completed the application, please mail, e-mail or drop off at the GCEA office in Gunnison or our branch location in Crested Butte, Colorado.
