How does Net Metering work?

Net {metering|Metering} is {a credit system that allows|a credit system that permits|an option for credit that allows} {you to return solar electricity|you to transfer solar energy|solar power to be returned} {to the|back to|into the} grid. It also offsets {the electricity|the power|electricity} {you use from the utility|you consume from your utility|that you get from utilities} in {future|the future}. This {gives you the economic|is the financial|allows you to reap the economic} {value|benefit|worth} {of the solar energy|from the energy|that solar power} {you produce|you generate|that you generate}. {You can eliminate your|You can reduce your|It is possible to reduce} monthly {electricity costs by properly|electric bill by correctly|energy bills by} {sizing|setting up|the size of} your solar {system|panel}.

{The middle of the day,|In the middle of the afternoon,|It is the time of day} {when|during which} the sun {shines|is shining}{, is when| is when| is the time that} solar panels {produce|generate|create} the most {electricity|power}. {Problem is,|The problem is that|However,} the {middle of the afternoon happens|middle of the afternoon tends|midday is known} to be {the time you|when you|the time when you} {use|consume|are using} the most {electricity|energy}. {Your panels are producing|The panels you have are producing|Panels are cranking out}{ way| far|} more {electricity that|power than|electricity than} {your home actually needs|your home actually requires|your home actually needs}.

The {excess electricity generated|extra electricity produced} by solar panels {is sent|is delivered|gets sent} {to the grid when it|back to grids when the system|into the grid when it} {produces|generates} more {electricity than|power than what|energy than} the {home uses|household consumes|house uses}. Net {metering is used to manage|meters are used to control|meters are used to manage} {excess generation|the excess generation|excess energy generation}. Your utility will {credit your account|charge your account|be credited} {for the full retail price|with the retail value|for the entire retail cost} of solar energy {when|once} {a net-metered system sends|the net-metered system is able to send|the net-metered system transmits} {it to the|energy to|its energy back to the} grid.

{At night|In the evening|After dark}{, your solar panels stop| the solar panels stop| your solar panels cease} producing electricity. The grid {then supplies|then provides|supplies} {electricity to your electric meter|the electricity you use to charge your electric meters|power to the electric meter}. The utility{ then|} {calculates the difference between how|determines the difference between how|determines the difference between the} much electricity {you have sent|you’ve sent|you’ve provided} {to the grid and|into the grid, and|back to grid as well as} {how much you|the amount you|how much} {used in determining|utilized to calculate|have used to determine} {your final bill at the|your final bill at|the final amount due at the} {end of each billing period|conclusion of each billing period|close of each billing cycle}. This is {net|known as net|called net} {metering|meters}.

These are the key issues to consider when looking at net metering within your state:

Limitations {on system capacity|on capacity of the system|to system capacity}

The {system size|size of the system|size of your system} (or {total|the total|overall} capacity) {that you can install|that you are able to install|which you are able to set up} is {often limited by|usually limited by the|typically limited by} {utilities or public commissions|public commissions or utilities}. {These policies often|The policies typically|They typically} {limit the system’s capacity at|restrict the system’s capacity to} {a specific percentage|certain percentages|the percentage} of your {annual electricity consumption|annual consumption of electricity|total annual consumption}. {This is usually|It is typically|This usually ranges} between 100 {and|to} 150{%| percent}.

Excess generation credit rate

Excess {generation is|generation occurs|production occurs} {when your system produces|the time when your system generates} more {electricity that you use|electricity than you consume|power than you need}. {Your utility must|The utility has to|The utility is required to} {compensate you through|pay you a fee through|compensate you with} net {metering|meters}.

{Most utilities will pay|The majority of utilities will compensate|Most utilities will reimburse} you for {excess electricity that|the excess electricity|any excess electricity} you {produce over|generate over|generate in} {a 12-month period|12 months|twelve months}. If {this is the case|that is the case,|that’s the case} you {can use excess|are able to use the excess|may use} production credits {up to|for up to|to the extent of} one year.

There are {many|a variety of|numerous} {utilities that offer|utilities that provide|companies that provide} {compensation for excess solar production|compensation for solar production that is not enough|the option of compensation for excess solar production}. {Many utilities credit|A majority of utilities credit|Many utilities will credit} excess solar {generation|power|production} at {full retail rates|retail prices that are fully inclusive|the full retail rate}{, which allows| that allows| and allow} for the “one{ to|} one” crediting {described above|mentioned above|that was mentioned earlier}.

{Some utilities, however,|Certain utilities, however,|Some utilities} are now {crediting|credited with|able to credit} {excess generation|surplus generation|excess power} at lower {rates|prices}. {If this is the case|If this is the case,|If this is true,} {you will need to install|you’ll need to set up|you’ll have to install} {a system to allow|an appliance that allows|the system that will allow} you to {use|make use of|utilize} {as much solar electricity as|the maximum amount of solar power|all the solar energy} you {can on-site|want on your own|want on site}.

Cap on {state-wide net metering|the state-wide net metering|state-wide net-metering}

{Many states have policies|A lot of states have laws|There are many states that have policies} {that limit how much energy|which limit the amount of energy that|that restrict the amount of energy} can be net {metered|measured|and billed}. These {rules are detrimental to|regulations are harmful to|rules harm} states{ and limit solar deployment| and restrict solar development|, and they limit solar installation}. {Many cases suggest that legislators|There are numerous instances that suggest that lawmakers|A number of cases suggest that legislators} {established a low nationwide net-metering|set a very low net-metering|put in place a net-metering cap that was low across the nation} cap {years|a few years|several years} {ago|back|long ago} (often less than {3 to 4|3-4} percent of {total utility electricity|the total electricity utility|total electricity} {sale|sold}).

The main reason why this happens is when you have a grid-tied solar system, it has safety measures preinstalled to shut down production in case of a power outage so as not to do extensive damage to the grid or the employees working on fixing the outage.

If you would like to be less dependent on the grid or ideally have no dependence, then you can add storage batteries to your solar system.
Backup batteries store the excess energy produced by solar for later use (for example, when there is a power outage). You can provide backup for some of your home appliances or all of them by installing more batteries depending on your energy consumption.
