Getting Started

Once you decide to invest in solar at your home, follow these steps to ensure you get a correctly installed solar system.

Contact Westby Electric & Water Utilities

Let us know when you begin construction of your solar project so that we can schedule to have a bi-directional meter installed and provide any needed assistance.



Contact local solar installation contractors

Get quotes and compare the total costs and payback periods of different systems and installers.



Complete required interconnection application documents

Complete the Distributed Generation Application and Supplement form prior to installation and the Distributed Generation Interconnection Agreement upon completion, and other necessary forms.



Obtain local permits

Make sure your contractor contacts your local government permitting office to submit the necessary paperwork and have a structural analysis performed for any roof-mounted application.



Installation and inspection

Upon final installation of your solar system, have a final inspection by your local building inspector.
