URE is contracted with Buckeye Power for supplying electricity to its members. Through our agreements with Buckeye we are not allowed to have large power generating systems interconnected. URE does have a rate schedule for supplemental generating systems under 25kw (Net Metering pdf).
These may be connected upon filing the necessary documentation and submitting a copy of the URE Interconnection Agreement 602Cogen Rules (24 pg pdf).
Members installing larger natural gas or diesel –powered generators that can be operated during emergencies are not required to file an agreement however URE should be notified. This information assists the Cooperative employees that are working on power lines during outage situations.
