The Montana Electric Cooperatives' Association (MECA) adopted model interconnection guidelines in 2001 and a revised net-metering policy in September 2008. Net metering is available in whole or part by most of the 26 electric cooperatives in Montana. A map of the service areas of each of member cooperative is available on the MECA web site. To determine if a specific cooperative offers net metering, view the MECA map to obtain contact information for that cooperative.
Under the model policy, customers who generate electricity using a renewable source including, but not limited to, wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric or fuel cells are eligible for net metering. Net metering is defined as the interconnection of member-owned generation from a renewable resource to the cooperative's facilities, in which the generation output of energy not used at the service is netted against the energy delivered by the cooperative within the following guidelines
