What is net metering?
Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. To say it in another way, it is a tool that stores in the grid the excess energy produced by your Solar Panel System. Some days, due to weather conditions, your panels will not be producing enough energy, but the utility grid will count the energy against the credits you’ve banked over time. Customers are only billed for their “net” energy use.
How does net metering works?
For example, if a customer with a solar panel generates 100 units of electricity in a month but only uses 80 units, the utility company will credit the customer for the remaining 20 units. The customer can then use those credits to offset their electricity costs in future months.
Why is net metering important?
Net metering is important to encourage the grater adoption of solar throughout the country. Solar energy is a green technology has a wide range of advantages that can benefit not only the customers, but the world as a whole.
Why is net metering valuable for costumers?
Net metering allow utility customers to generate their own clean electricity. Most solar costumers produce more electricity than they consume. Net metering allows them to send that excess power to the grid and reduce their future electric bills.
Net metering creates jobs
Net metering increases the demand for solar energy. The higher demand provides substantial economic benefits such as creation of new jobs, income and investment. The solar industry employs more than 230,000 American workers with an up-going trend!
