Are there any fees associated with the application process or monthly fees for having the system?

There is a $50 net meter inspection fee that SVEC charges to inspect the system and change the meter. This is typically paid by your solar installer on your behalf. A monthly bill with solar can be as little as our basic consumer charge (plus taxes and fees) if all kWh consumption was produced by the solar array. This is our base charge to be connected to the SVEC distribution system. There are no standby fees assessed by SVEC.
