PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

C.O.R.E.

The Customer Owned Renewable Energy Program (C.O.R.E.) is a buy-all sell-all net billing arrangement, offering participating residential and commercial customers a credit on their monthly electricity bill equivalent to the avoided cost of generation.

  • Residential Customers can install up to 10kW
  • Commercial Customers can install up to 60kW
  • Systems that are 61 KW and above in size are considered utility-scale and require a Purchase Power Agreement with an Independent Power Producer (IPP).

PROCESS

 

U.O.R.E.

The Utility Owned Renewable Energy Program (U.O.R.E.) offers qualifying customers the opportunity to lease their rooftop space to FortisTCI for the generation of solar energy. FortisTCI owns and maintains the Solar PV System, and the customer receives a credit on their monthly electricity bill for use of rooftop space.

  • Residential Customers can install up to 10kW
  • Commercial Customers can install up to 60kW

NET BILLING & INTERCONNECTION

Net Billing allows customers participating in renewable energy programs at FortisTCI to interconnect and sell energy back to the Company’s grid. Energy is purchased at a rate based on the avoided cost of generation at that time. This buy-all, sell-all net billing arrangement is a monthly credit that is reflective of the cost of fuel. This is displayed on participating customers’ bills as a C.O.R.E. credit.

 

Interconnection is the physical linking of renewable energy equipment to the FortisTCI grid.

 

**Customers that wish to interconnect to the FortisTCI grid, must be enrolled in either the C.O.R.E. or U.O.R.E. Program. To ensure safety and stabilization of the electricity grid. Any non-participating systems must be standalone or completely isolated from the FortisTCI electricity grid.**

 

Program Principles

The FortisTCI Renewable Energy Programs are based on four key principles:

 

SAFETY

FortisTCI will not create or knowingly allow any customer to create a situation where electricity may cause harm to themselves, other customers, the general public, or FortisTCI staff.

 

SERVICE QUALITY

FortisTCI will not allow the quality and reliability of services to be diminished due to the interconnection of generation.

 

NO COST SUBSIDIES

FortisTCI will not share in the costs of another party’s generation because such subsidy would result in higher rates to all customers.

 

NO INCREASED RATES

Rates charged to electricity customers should not increase as a result of the introduction of renewable energy.
