Wyoming

An arrow graphic shows that Alabama has no renewable portfolio standard.

Carve-out: None
Tracking system: Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS)

Wyoming does not have a renewable energy portfolio standard and no renewable energy credits to incentivize solar customers. Its net metering program is limited to systems of up to 25 kW, hindering an additional income stream for midmarket solar.

Net Metering

Wyoming’s statewide net metering policy applies to investor owned utilities, electric cooperatives, and irrigation districts. However, the maximum system capacity eligible for the program is 25 kW, which excludes midmarket customers from participation. 

System size limit: 25 kW

Aggregate cap: Not specified

Credit: Kilowatt-hour credit at retail rate. Utilities may not charge customers fees in addition to minimum monthly charges that apply to other utility customers

RECs: Not applicable

Meter aggregation: Not addressed

Interconnection

The Wyoming Public Service Commission has not established standard interconnection rules or procedures for systems that are not net metered.

System size limit: 25 kW

Liability insurance: Not required

External disconnect switch: System owners are required to install and are responsible for the cost of a manual external disconnect switch.

Third Party Ownership

The status of third-party Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) is unclear in Wyoming.

Community Solar

There are currently no statewide community solar policies or programs in Wyoming.

State Incentive Programs

There are currently no statewide solar financial incentive programs in Wyoming.

Utility Incentive Programs

Please check with your distribution utility for utility incentive programs for midmarket solar.
