A contribution in aid of construction for electric distribution facilities must be paid prior to facility construction. This is a pre-payment held in an account for five years. As electric meters are installed, we automatically issue refunds (embedded credits) for each meter. We issue embedded credits to the individual or business that paid for the development’s electric distribution facilities for up to five years, and up to the maximum amount of the original contribution. For details on the credits for your development, please contact your We Energies representative. A Social Security number or federal tax ID number is required to process refunds.
Similar to embedded credits on electric facilities, payments for natural gas facilities also are held in an account for a five-year period. Once per year, the account is reviewed. If gas meters have been installed in that development, refunds will be issued to the developer based on the amount of the calculated cost allowance times the number of meters set. A Social Security number or federal tax ID number is required to process refunds.
