Whether you’re considering installing solar panels as part of your Hurricane Matthew restoration plan or you’ve decided it’s time to make the jump into a renewable generation system, please be sure to contact PWC first to learn about our solar requirements before signing a contract or making a commitment to have the panels installed.

PWC’s residential and commercial customers who are installing a renewable generation system with a nameplate rating of 10 kW or less, and with plans to interconnect with PWC’s distribution grid with the intent of selling excess power back to PWC, must submit an application requesting interconnection.

Upon approval of the application and prior to interconnection, the customer’s system must be verified by PWC as meeting all interconnection standards. The customer will be required to enter into a written agreement with PWC which specifies the installation and operating requirements to ensure that personal safety and system reliability will not be compromised.

For more information about this program, please call (910) 223-4766.
