What is net metering?

Net metering allows residential and commercial customers who generate their own electricity from solar power to feed unused electricity back into the grid. Excess production is credited to your account each month and “stored” in an energy bank associated with your utility bill. If after 12 months your total energy production exceeds the total consumed, you’ll get a check from the utility company. Because the amount you’ll get is calculated at the “wholesale” rate, it’s important to design your system so that you use as much of the power you produce as possible over the year to maximize your revenue.
