Generating electricity right at home
The world of electricity is changing, and we are here to help you take advantage of renewables to offset your energy usage through micro-generation.
Micro-generation solutions help you take control of your electricity needs by generating power right at home. Typically less than five megawatts in size, micro-generation units produce electricity using renewable, environmentally-friendly technologies such as solar panels, combined heat and power, small-scale hydro, wind, biomass or fuel cells.
Bring micro-generation to your home
- Complete the micro-generation application form. Please remember that missing or incomplete information on the application may cause delays in providing service.
- Send the application form with all the required documents to MGapplications@atcoelectric.com.
- Notify your electric retailer. You must advise them of the micro-generation connection date and arrange for compensation for any extra energy your unit creates.
Once we receive your application, we will review and confirm it meets the criteria of a micro-generator. If it does, we will forward the application to our local office, which will coordinate installation of bi-directional metering and the signing of an operating agreement.
