Interconnection Process

For those members installing a solar generating system, below are the steps to connect with Mid-Carolina’s electric power system.

  1. You or your solar provider sends Mid-Carolina a completed application for interconnection, along with a single line diagram of the proposed connection and an application fee.
  2. Mid-Carolina reviews the application and writes an interconnection agreement. The agreement is signed by both you and a Mid-Carolina representative. We also provide you with the Net Metering Policies that must be signed.
  3. You have the solar equipment installed.
