  • Your New Meter

    Your New Meter

    Inland Power & Light recently installed new meters that work to lower operating costs, improve power restoration, improve reliability and improve accuracy.

Inland Power supports our member’s interest in supplying their own electricity needs through the use of qualifying renewable energy sources. We have adopted a streamlined process so members can be assured that the system they are interested in meets Inland Power standards before they commit to buying and installing a solar, wind or other renewable energy generating system.

Net metering is a method to support member investment in renewable energy technologies. Net metering enables members to use their own generation to offset their consumption over a billing period. This is accomplished by allowing their electric meters to net with their consumption when they generate electricity.

Before interconnecting a system there are a few steps to have your system approved by Inland Power at your site. Answering the following questions is the first step in this process; nearly all residential scale systems will qualify for this streamlined approval process and you will have an answer in 15 business days or less.

1. Does your proposed system use an inverter-based interconnection which is certified by an independent laboratory to meet the requirements of UL 1741?

2. Is this system connected through a single-phase transformer?

3. Is the system 12 kW or smaller in size?

4. Does the installation of this system require changes or additions to Inland Power’s facilities? (Answering yes to this question requires additional review by Inland Power staff.)

If you answered yes to the first three questions and no to the fourth question you are ready to apply for interconnection to the Inland Power system. If you answered no to one of the first three questions or yes to question four, our engineering staff will need longer to evaluate your request.

The system categories are as follow:

  • Residential-scale system: Combined nameplate capacity at a single site of 12 kWdc or less.
  • Commercial-scale system: Combined nameplate capacity greater than 12 kWdc.
  • Shared commercial solar project: Owned or administered by an electric utility with a combined nameplate capacity greater than 1 MWdc and up to 5 MWdc.
  • Community solar project: No larger than 1,000 kWdc.

Incentive Rates

Incentive rates for the new program are based on the fiscal year that the system is certified, project type, and made-in-Washington bonus. Incentive rates are listed in the chart below. This is a production-based incentive. Inland Power will report annual production of your system to the WSU Energy Program team. They will then calculate your incentive for that fiscal year and share this with Inland Power, who will then provide you an incentive payment by Dec. 15 of that fiscal year.

A fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. We are currently in fiscal year 2018 until June 30, 2018. Certification of a new system may take up to 30 days from date of submission.

Submitting Your Application

You can submit your completed application to For Washington residents there are additional programs which can make your system even more valuable. The Renewable Incentive Payment Program establishes a renewable energy production incentive with financial payments for certain renewable generating resources. Under Washington law (RCW 82.16), homeowners with renewable on-site power systems certified by the Washington State University Energy Extension can earn various per kilowatt-hour (kWh) incentive payments for metered generation. There is a $5,000 cap annually per household. See the documents to the right for details on this program and how to have your system approved for this valuable program.

These programs are currently available to residential customers who receive electrical service from Inland Power & Light. You must install and interconnect an eligible generating system (not exceeding 12 kW) located on your premises, which is interconnected to Inland’s electrical system. All required documentation (application, contract, building permits, WSU certification, etc.) must be completed and have written approval received from Inland Power & Light prior to interconnecting your generating system to Inland’s electrical grid.
