Do we receive power from windmills at the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon?
The windmills are owned and operated by a private company, from which Spanish Fork City receives rental, sales tax, and energy sales tax revenue. The power produced by the windmills feeds the regional power grid that Spanish Fork City is connected to but is sold elsewhere.

Net Metering Questions
Does the City offer a 1 to 1 kWh credit?
Yes, the kWhs you produce are used to offset the kWh you consume before you are billed on the net kWhs.
Do the excess kWhs I produce carry over to the next month?
Yes, the excess energy you produce will carry over from month to month until the solar season resets in February. Any credit at this point will be forfeited.
If I am producing my own power why am I still on the City's power system?
Most solar systems do not generate enough electricity to fully sustain a customer year round to be “off grid”. They also do not have batteries to supply power at night.
If the City’s power goes out will my power remain on?
Unless you have a battery backup for your solar system, when the power grid goes down you will be out of power.
How do I apply for net metering?
