Net Metering

Overview

The Net-Metering program allows homeowners, businesses, and municipalities to offset their electricity usage with eligible renewable energy technologies. Net-metered renewable energy installations are generally sized to meet a property's electric demand. Net-metered systems are allowed to generate excess electricity, but not more than 125% of the electricity consumed on-site. The homeowner, business, or municipality can choose to receive compensation for that excess generation or a credit to their future electric bills.
