How Net Metering Works

On the surface, it seems pretty simple. Capture the sun’s rays with a solar panel (or an array of panels); convert it into energy for use in your home or business.

There are a few added steps, but that’s the gist of it…

Our solar panel arrays are installed under the guise of net metering. Check out the following infographic for a visual representation of how your prospective system will operate.

What is Net Metering?

In a nutshell, net metering stems from a system in which solar panels or other renewable energy generators are connected to a public-utility power grid and surplus power is transferred onto the grid, allowing customers to offset the cost of power drawn from the utility partially, or in full. The monthly bill from the applicable public-utility company that a residence or business is tied to will reflect the “net” energy usage (i.e., the difference between the energy used during the billing period and the energy that was produced by the renewable energy generator).
