Net Metering

DISLAIMER: The District's solar program is nearing its cap for the Washington State Incentive. Once the cap is met, the District will no longer approve net-metering incentive payouts. Please click here for further information on the Cowlitz PUD Solar and Net-Metering Program incentive.

Cowlitz PUD's Net Metering program offers a special metering and billing arrangement between you and the PUD by interconnecting your small generation system with the PUD's electric distribution system through your electric meter. Qualified customer-generating systems may include fuel cells or facilities that use water, wind, solar energy, or biogas from animal waste as a fuel to generate up to 100 kilowatts (KW) of electricity.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by telephone or e-mail - or come in to our office Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 961 12th Avenue in Longview.
