Dominion and Pepco both allow the installation of solar panels on your home and business. The short answer is “Yes, no problem.”
The long answer:
Ipsun Power is a General Contractor (GC) in 3 U.S. States: Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia (Washington DC). These states have several utilities serving the area, mainly Dominion Energy, formerly known as Dominion Power, and Pepco. These are known as IOUs, or Investor Owned Utilities. There are also several co-ops in our area, including NOVEC and Rappahannock Power. The rules and laws for the IOU’s are different than co-ops, so make sure to ask your solar consultant about specific details and incentives that may be particular to your utility.
All utilities in our area allow us to make an interconnection request to have solar installed on our customer’s buildings. Ipsun’s permitting and interconnection specialists will submit your paperwork and make the process as simple as possible.
