Generation Interconnection Requires Agreement with Jackson EMC

Customers planning to install onsite generation other than emergency generation must enter into a distributed generation interconnection agreement with Jackson EMC prior to operating their systems.

Parallel Generation

Such onsite generation, intended primarily to offset part or all of a customer's requirement for electricity, operates in parallel with Jackson EMC’s distribution system and is termed "parallel generation." Our requirements for member-owned parallel generation help ensure the safety of our employees, customers and the public, and safeguard the quality and reliability of our distribution system.

The Net Metering Rider applies to customers that plan to sell electrical energy produced by a distributed generation facility to the Jackson EMC.

The distributed generation procedure does not apply to emergency backup generators designed to operate during power outages. See Generator Safety for more details.

The Distributed Generation Interconnection Procedure includes an explanation of the application process, an application, an agreement and additional information. The procedure also includes what types of parallel generation can qualify for our Fast Track process.
