For systems 25 KW and over, you will need interconnection approval from EnerStar (Article 16), and excess generation purchases will be governed by WVPA's Distributed Generation policies. Members wishing to install a renewable energy system must own it themselves. EnerStar's bylaws do not allow for a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA.)
