Getting Started

​Customers are increasingly supplementing PECO​ energy with self-generated power. Interconnection is the process of registering and connecting power generation equipment, such as solar energy systems, to PECO's electric distribution system.​

Step-by-Step Process

Every solar project goes through a similar step-by-step process. Here are the primary steps that you will experience if you choose to go solar.

Research Solar

Find out your property's solar potential based on rooftop characteristics and electricity use. Visit our interconnection viability map to see if solar is feasible for you. Next, research and hire a qualified contractor.

Apply to Connect

Work with your contractor to submit an interconnection application requesting your system be interconnected to PECO's smart grid.

Install and Operate

Have a qualified contractor install your solar energy system. Once your interconnection application has been approved, PECO will issue a Permission to Operate (PTO) and ensure the proper net metering infrastructure is in place (if applicable). Then, flip the switch and start safely generating energy

Enjoy the Benefits!

Receive net metering credits from PECO when your solar energy system produces more energy than you consume (up to 110% of your previous 12 months usage if installing a leased system). You also may be eligible for other solar credits as detailed on your solar calculator report.

For more information about the process, download our interconnection brochure.

Apply to Connect My Solar Energy System

In most cases, a customer will work with a contractor to connect their solar energy system to the smart grid. However, you can apply for interconnection as a customer.
