CNMEC Net Metering

Thank you for your interest in Net Metering. Our goal is to provide you with accessible information to make your interconnection as streamlined as possible. This page provides several links for the documents you will need to get started.

Two of the documents are PRC Rule 568 and the New Mexico Interconnection Manual, which is referenced in Rule 568. The interconnection manual includes the Simplified Interconnection Application on page 24, which will be the application required for interconnecting with our distribution system for most residential customers.

Another document is the New Mexico PRC rule 570, which describes the credit you would receive should you generate more power than you consume over a given billing period. This credit would be equal to CNMEC's avoided cost, which is filed in January of every year with the PRC.

Prior to interconnection, you should have all required paperwork and applications submitted. We will also need to inspect your installation, possibly change your meter, and have written approval from the state electrical inspector. Please contact us at (505) 832-4483 and let the operator know you are calling about Net Metering if you have any other questions or if you need more information.
