Interconnection Applications

In some locations across DEC’s service territory, members are no longer able to install solar generation systems that feed energy back onto Cooperative power lines. In these areas, so many solar installations have been installed that it is not safe for additional power to be fed onto our distribution system. The addition of new solar systems in these areas would overburden the system and cause possible damage or the failure of electrical equipment leading to power outages. Please click HERE to view a map where members can no longer install solar arrays. Those areas are shaded in red. Members who live in areas shaded in yellow on the map may require an interconnect study to be completed before they install solar on their home or business. Please contact DEC with any questions at 855-332-9090.
