Install Your Own Generating Equipment

You May Qualify for IPL's Net Metering Rate

All IPL customers who install, own and operate their own generating system can reduce their electric bills by generating power with a small-scale solar, wind or hydroelectric energy system. Customers with systems up to 1 MW in size may qualify for IPL's Net Metering rate.

An increasing number of customers are choosing to purchase and install their own small-scale electric generating systems to benefit both the environment and their electric bill. 

Drawing on these other power sources reduces the amount of power used from IPL. Systems that produce more electricity than they use may be a candidate for net metering wherein IPL will credit your next bill for the net amount of electricity you produced in excess of what you used.

It's a win-win-win situation! You can enjoy reduced electric bills, IPL benefits from a decreased demand for power on its system, and environmental resources are preserved.
