For those who generate solar/wind power
If you have or are considering a solar or other power generation system at your home or business, you can offset your power costs by producing energy and selling any excess power generated to Apple Valley Choice Energy (AVCE).
With AVCE you can earn substantially more for every kilowatt hour you provide back to the grid, compared to the net energy rates offered by Southern California Edison (SCE). Currently, AVCE’s YourChoice reimbursement rate is 100% higher than SCE’s current Net Energy Metering rate.
With the YourChoice program, you’ll receive an energy credit for the power your system provides to the grid. At the close of each month, we’ll tally the amount of grid energy you’ve consumed and contributed. If what you’ve contributed is more than what you’ve consumed, we’ll issue a credit. If you’ve used more than you’ve contributed, you’ll be debited. Each April, on the true up date, the kilowatt usage is evaluated, and if your energy production exceeds your energy consumption, a rebate is issued based on $0.06 per kWh. Simple as that.
How to Enroll
If you already enjoy the benefits of Net Energy Metering with SCE, you do not have to do anything. Your account will automatically be enrolled in YourChoice when it transitions to AVCE.
If you are contemplating installing on-site solar, wind or other self-generation, your system installer can guide you on how to sign up for Net Energy Metering through SCE.
