Renewable Energy Generators

 

Follow these steps to participate in the program:

  1. Review FPL's Net Metering Guidelines to help you achieve a system that best suits your needs.
  2. Begin the application process online to obtain pre-approval for your system size prior to installing your renewable generation system. The information you will need to obtain a pre-approval are:
    • The FPL account number where the system will be installed
    • Tax payer identification number (SSN or EIN) matching the name on the FPL account
    • Equipment size and details
  3. After you receive the pre-approval online, install your renewable generation system
  4. Sign the interconnection agreement available in the online application
  5. Once installation is complete, have your system inspected by the local authority that has jurisdiction and upload a copy of the approved permit or a print screen from the local authority’s website indicating the permit has been approved that includes the following:
    • Electrical and mechanical inspection signed off / approved by the local inspector
    • Description of work (example: solar, solar panels, PV, wind turbine, etc.)
    • Address where the system was installed
    • Permit number
    • Building department name
  6. FPL will send you an email acknowledgement upon receipt of the documents listed above.
  7. Once all of the documentation has been received and approved, FPL will send you an email confirming that a bi-directional meter has been ordered. Do not begin parallel operation until your bi-directional meter is installed.
  8. After the bi-directional meter is installed, FPL will send you an email with permission to operate your new renewable generation system.
