What is Net Energy Metering (NEM)?

There are going to be times when you collect more energy than you need! The electric companies need this energy, even though they hate to admit it. What this means is that they will actually purchase this power back from you, which could further reduce your solar cost. This buyback of a solar system’s energy can offset your total electric bill. More money in your pocket at the end of the day!

Key Points:

  1. California’s Net Energy Metering is a practice where you get credited for the excess energy generated by your system.
  2. The electric company NEEDS your excess power!
  3. You can use the extra energy you produce to offset your total electric bill.
