UTAH MUNICIPAL POWER AGENCY AND MEMBER CITY SOLAR POWER PROGRAM
This Solar Power Program (Solar Program) gives Commercial and Industrial Customers the opportunity to sell Solar Power to Utah Municipal Power Agency (Agency) under a long-term power sales contract. This Solar Program is designed solely for Commercial and Industrial Customers located within the Member Cities that are 1) in good standing with the Member Electric Utility; 2) builds and operates a solar generating facility greater than 25 kW and less than 750 kW, and 3) willing to comply with the terms and condition of this Solar Program.
The Agency is looking for clean renewable electric power to supplement its power supply to its members. This Solar Program gives Customers the opportunity to tap the potential of solar generation to help supply a portion of the Customer’s energy and demand with the support of the Agency and Member Electric Utility.
This Solar Program applies to a Solar Facility that is located at the Customer’s Service Address and that has a total capacity of more than 25 kW and not greater than 750 kW. Solar customers with smaller solar generators of less than 25 kW must comply with the Member Electric Utility’s Net-Metering Policy. The Agency and its Member Electric Utility currently do not have a policy permitting interconnection of solar generators having a capacity of more than 750 kW. Solar Projects greater than 750 kW will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The Agency is an all requirements supplier of electricity to its Member Cities of Levan, Manti, Nephi, Provo, Salem and Spanish Fork. For purposes of this Solar Program, the Agency will be the buyer of all solar generation from the Customer. The Agency’s Member Electric Utility will continue to be the seller of all electricity at its current and applicable electric rate for the Customer.
This is a Buy-All/Sell-All Approach. The Customer’s sale of Solar Power to the Agency and interconnection to the Member Electric Utility’s system does not change the Customer’s electric bill and rate from the Utility. The Member Electric Utility will continue to sell and the Customer will continue to buy retail electricity in the same manner and at the same rate as the Customer did prior to entering the Solar Program. This electricity will be measured through the Customer’s Service Meter.
The Agency will pay for all electricity generated under this Solar Program at the following Rate: $0.060/kWh (6¢ kWh). This Rate and Solar Program is subject to change at the sole discretion of Agency’s Board of Directors and by any participating Member City. However, any approved and executed agreements with Customers will be subject to the terms and conditions including the agreed upon Rates for the term of the Agreements.
