Net-metering is very important because whenever your solar electric system is producing more than you are consuming on that meter, energy is flowing onto the grid. The direction of energy flow changes frequently throughout a typical day, especially as air conditioners and other heavy loads cycle on and off.
A kWh Earned is a kWh Saved!
Without net-metering you could be selling energy to the utility at a cheaper rate than they charge you!
With net-metering you are only charged for the "net" difference in energy (kiloWatt-hours) at the end of the billing period. You get the same full retail rate savings that you would get from reducing your consumption by the same amount!
Let the Power Company Pay You!
It is possible to produce more power than you use. The net metering rule requires investor-owned utilities to pay you if they owe you at the end of a 12 month billing period!
