Connect your solar panels or wind turbine to the electric grid

Distributed generation is the connection of small power generation equipment to the utility distribution system. Typically this is in the form of renewable energy (such as wind turbines and photovoltaic panels) and other fueled turbines and rotating generators. Residential systems are typically less than 50 kW (kilowatts) and are used to offset normal usage.

If you are interested in connecting a distributed generation source to your residence, follow the required steps link at the left.

If you just want information on the requirements for connecting to the CenterPoint Energy system, then look through the links at the left and at the PUCT Substantive Rules link at the right.

Additionally, an Internet search on solar power, wind power or distributed generation will provide you with more information.
