If you are an FPL Netmetering customer with a solar electric system, you may have received an email recently describing changes to the program. All of these changes apply only to new Netmetering customers, and no action is needed for existing customers.
The only significant change that applies to non-government entities is that a manual disconnect switch is no longer needed for new Tier 2 and Tier 3 interconnected systems (systems with a gross power rating exceeding 10kW).
Specifically, the email addressed these following changes:
- Eliminating the requirement for a manual visual load break disconnect switch on U.L. 1741 listed inverter based renewable energy systems. It is still required on non-inverter based systems.
- Adding text to recognize the insurance limits that apply to governments in Florida.
- Changing the agreements so that you can type in the information, print, have it signed, and return.
- A witness signature is no longer required.
If you have any questions regarding the changes to the FPL Netmetering program, let me know!
