More info for Apply for a net metering public ID number

There are two different situations where a public entity (either municipality or other governmental entity) would need to obtain a classification number (also called a public ID number):

  • A public entity that wants to start net metering in the public cap.  A public entity will not be able to create an account with MassACA if it does not have a public ID number issued by the DPU;
  • A public entity that is going to receive net metering credits from a separate public entity (through Schedule Z).
