Richmond Power & Light customers who generate their own power might soon be able to sell extra kilowatts to RP&L, located in Richmond, Indiana. Customers with wind or solar power systems could sell excess power back to the grid if RP&L adopts a proposed net metering ordinance, which the RP&L board will review proposed at its Nov. 15 meeting. The proposed ordinance limits solar and wind generating systems to 10 kW. RP&L charges its customers 7.5 to 8 cents per kilowatt-hour but customers would only get credited for 4.5 cents per kWh for any excess they send back to the grid. A disconnect switch would also be required for all systems.
