Utility customers who generate their own electricity and are connected to the utility’s distribution grid offset electricity that would otherwise be purchased from the utility. There may be times when the customer’s system generates more electricity than the home needs during the day, week or month. In these cases, a credit is issued to the customer’s account for the excess power, which can be used during the following month(s) until the annual true-up. In other words, the customer will only pay for the energy that the utility provides.

Benefits of Net Metering:

  • Reduces annual cost of electricity.
  • No batteries required! This allows for fewer system components and a lower overall system cost.
  • Ensures that your system is connected to the utility’s grid, so even during cloudy days, there is always a dependable source of electricity.
  • Your participating utility credits you at retail rate for power, so as the price of power goes up, the value of your net metered solar increases as well.
