Incentive Initiation Date10/1/2004
Incentive Size and Funding SourceOkanogan County PUD's Sustainable Natural Alternative Power Program (SNAP) offers an incentive payment based on the system's production on a dollar per kilowatt-hour ($/kWh) basis. SNAP producers also net meter and are connected to the utility's electrical distribution system. The amount paid by the utility to the renewable energy producers depends on the total amount contributed by Okanogan County PUD purchasers through their green pricing program, with a maximum possible payment of $1.00/kWh. In July 2012, the producers were paid $0.037/kWh for their production over the previous year. The production incentive is paid in addition to any net metering credit the producer may receive from the utility. Meters are read and payments issued once a year, usually at the end of June (to tie in with the Washington State Renewable Energy Production Incentive).
