Interested in becoming a solar customer?

Rate Information:

Net Energy Metering 2.0 (NEM2.0) was adoptied in spring of 2019 following numerous public hearings. Under MID’s new rates, new residential solar customers falling under the NEM 2.0 program will see a fixed customer charge of $65. The fixed customer charge is generally associated with the costs of owning, operating and maintaining MID’s electric infrastructure. The customer charge also allows us to collect the costs of maintaining standby electricity for solar customers through MID’s infrastructure.
