Net metering

Are you interested in installing solar panels or using other technologies to generate your own power? We can help.

Net Metering

For smaller generation projects – typically up to 25 kilowatts – a net meter is required. A net meter measures the difference between the electricity from the utility used by the customer and the electricity generated and provided back to the utility.

Net metering requirements can be found in our net metering tariffs. Once the renewable generator is installed and approved to code, a net metering agreement is signed and a new meter is installed. Find out how net metering works »
