If you’re interested in generating your own renewable energy at your home of business, Net Metering could be for you. As part of the Net Metering program, you’ll earn credit on your monthly energy bill for any excess energy you don’t use.
Even though you generate electricity through your own renewable energy source, you'll still be connected to the grid. The energy you generate will decrease your need to purchase electricity from us and we will credit you for any extra energy you produce. It’s good for the planet ─ and your budget, too.
Net Metering is available when you generate energy using eligible renewable energy systems. Check out the details in the chart below.
