What is Net Metering?

Net metering measures the difference between the electricity you buy from us and the electricity you generate using your own solar, wind, micro hydro or other acceptable renewable generating equipment.

With net metering, you use the electricity you generate first, reducing what you would normally buy from us. If you generate more electricity than you use, the excess goes through your electric meter and into the grid.
