How To‎ > ‎

Finishing

Inspections

Schedule inspections by your town building inspector. The inspection approval is required before you can apply for permission to connect your system to the grid and activate it.

Activation

Net Meter Installation

Once your inspections are done, request installation of a Net Meter from the power company

Note: not only are you not allowed to begin sending power into the grid without the Net Meter, if you did then because of the way your normal meter works you would actually be paying the power company for the power you generate.

Grid Connection

  1. Once you have the Net Meter installed and permission from your power company, you can connect your system to the grid, which activates the microinverters and begins producing power.
  2. Set up your system and configure monitoring at Enlighten, 
    and install the smartphone app so you can see your production any time.
  3. Add your system to the HAREI production monitor.
  4. Enjoy the savings and the great feeling of doing your part to save the planet!

New Hampshire Rebate

File the followup application to collect your New Hampshire rebate (you'll get the instructions for this when you file the preliminary application).

Renewable Energy Certificates

Register with an independent auditor for creating your RECs, and with an auction sales agent for selling them.

Most HAREI systems are signed up with Knollwood Energy; they are a broker who manages the registration and sale of your RECs.
