Going Solar and Getting Started

Many consumers who are thinking about going solar have heard the term “net metering” but aren’t sure what it means.

What is Net Metering?

Put simply, net metering is a utility billing mechanism available in most states that offers a credit to residential and business customers who are making excess electricity with their solar panel systems and sending it back to the grid.

How Does Net Metering Work?

When you have a rooftop solar system, it can often generate more electricity than you consume during daylight hours.
