KEYS UNVEILS SOLAR NET-METERING AT GREEN SYMPOSIUM
03/17/2008 ~ Keys Energy Services’ (KEYS) General Manager & CEO, Lynne Tejeda, recently unveiled KEYS’ Solar Net-Metering option for customers wishing to install solar panels on their homes or businesses and interconnect to the electric grid. The announcement was made during the Government Going Green Symposium hosted by the Florida Keys Certified Public Manager chapter.

The net-metering option essentially allows KEYS to buy back excess energy produced by privately owned solar panels within KEYS service area.

“While solar panels are still costly and not yet affordable for all, KEYS’ net-metering option will help to ease the transition as customers go green,” said Tejeda. She added that, “customers should note that KEYS is not involved in the selling and/or installation of solar panels, but rather in the interconnection to the electric grid and buying back of excess power.”

As a public entity, KEYS is unable to recommend or promote solar energy contractors, however, customers are urged to visit the Florida Solar Energy Center at www.fsec.ucf.edu/en/ for more information.

KEYS’ customers wishing to interconnect their solar panels to the electric grid are urged to call KEYS at (305) 295-1080.
