What safety issues should I consider?

Safety is CEC's utmost concern. The Net Metering participant's generation must disconnect from the utility power system whenever an outage occurs. This prevents the member's generator from energizing CEC's facilities and creating a hazard. The installer and your local building inspector should work together to make sure the system is installed correctly to protect you and your home, and the CEC inspector will check to make sure the connection is safe for CEC.
