If a solar electric system will be connected to the grid, consumers will need to connect the system to the utility grid, commonly known as solar interconnection. For more general information on interconnection, visit Energy Sage- Solar interconnection: what you need to know.
Utilities will need to ensure that the solar electric system meets necessary electrical safety standards. They will also ensure that the system meets their respective net metering guidelines. Additionally, the South Carolina Generator Interconnection Procedures require insurance at a certain coverage prior to interconnection.
