What Is Net Energy Metering (NEM)?

Feb 5th 214:00:56 pm

Net energy metering (NEM) is an energy monitoring program for homeowners with solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, that allows homeowners to earn energy credits towards their electricity bill. By entering into a net metering program agreement with your power company, you can earn net energy credits towards your final “True-up” bill. It may be easier if you picture the grid as a giant battery that you can store your energy on until you need it. If you store enough solar energy, then you will not need to worry about buying anymore; however, if you consume more energy than you are producing you will need to buy that excess energy net back from the grid.
