To enroll in the Rooftop Solar Program, you must meet the following requirements:
To enroll in the Community Solar Program, you must meet the following requirements:
Do I have to submit an Interconnection Application for my generating facility?
Yes, an Interconnection Application is required for all generating facility's that can send energy to the Company's system. An Interconnection Application is needed to determine if:
there is enough capacity on the Company's system for energy sent from your generating facility,
any work needs to be performed and the cost of that work, and
a generating facility is compatible with the Company's system.
Do I need approval to install my generating facility?
Yes. You must submit an application for preliminary approval prior to installing your generating facility.
How long is the application process?
The Net Metering application review process is 30 business days from receipt of a complete application. If OG&E is not your energy supplier, you can apply to participate in Net Metering with your energy supplier.
If I am installing a portable generator, is an Interconnection Application required?
An Interconnection Application is not required if the generator is temporarily installed for emergency use only and is not running parallel with the Company's system.
Will my system produce energy during a power outage?
For safety reasons, a private generating system's inverter that is connected to the Company's system is designed to shut down automatically when a power outage occurs.
The government will give you free solar panels.
You may come across scammy solar advertisements about “free solar panels from the government.” This isn’t true; you can go solar for $0 down with a solar loan or lease, but federal and state governments do not provide free solar panel installations.
While the government won’t cover the cost of a solar panel installation, they do subsidize the upfront cost of purchasing a solar panel system through various solar incentives. The federal investment tax credit (ITC) allows you to claim 26 percent of the cost of your solar installation as a credit towards what you owe in federal taxes.
Going solar means going off the grid.
It is possible to install an off-grid solar panel system with the use of solar batteries, but the majority of solar panel installations are grid-tied. This allows you to use solar energy produced by your system during the day and draw electricity from the grid after the sun is down.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t cover all of your electricity needs with a solar panel system. OG&E will provide credits on your electricity bill for excess energy produced during the day because of a policy called net metering. With net metering, you’ll only be charged for the net amount of energy you’re using from the grid. If you generate more electricity than you use in a given month, you can use those net metering credits on a future bill.
Solar panels won’t work in the winter.
Solar panels need sunshine to generate electricity. You will likely generate less solar power in the winter months than summer because of fewer sunlight hours.
When your solar panels are covered in snow, they will not be generating power. Fortunately, solar panels are designed to bear a certain amount of weight and the snow shouldn’t cause any issues. Additionally, most panels are tilted at an angle so next time the sun comes out, the snow will slide off on its own.
Never pay an electric bill again.
While not impossible, it is highly unlikely to have a residential solar system that covers 100% of consumption.
It is impossible to produce 100% of consumption without batteries to store the energy produced during the day, to be used at night, when the panels cannot produce electricity.
Typically, customers are able to offset their consumption during peak times, when energy is more expensive, therefore providing savings on your electric bill. In addition to your usage, you will always have a meter charge, other riders, fees and taxes
I can expect to pay and save the same amount as my neighbor with solar panels.
Solar is not one-size-fits-all — each system is custom-designed for a roof and the amount of sunlight it receives. Even on the same street, the orientation of your roof may mean you receive more or less sunlight than your neighbor. This will increase the amount of electricity you can produce but could also mean a larger monthly payment than your neighbor with a smaller array.
Solar doesn’t make sense if the panels don’t cover 100 percent of my power.
Although rooftop solar cannot typically offset your entire electricity bill, it often decreases the amount you pay each month — even though you’re using the same amount of energy. Our PPA and Lease customers typically save money on their energy costs because they end up purchasing less electricity from their utility.
