Net Metering - How it Works
Solar energy systems reach peak electricity production in the afternoon when most people are not home using electricity, thus, electricity use is typically higher in the mornings and evenings. Net metering helps account for these fluctuations in your daily electricity production and usage.
Net metering is the process by which excess electricity is fed back to your electric utility’s grid when your system is producing more than needed. When this happens, your meter actually runs in reverse (turns backward or counts down if it is digital).
Net metering allows consumers to receive credit for the energy their solar panels generate. As a result, you can save tens of thousands of dollars on electricity costs over the lifetime of your solar energy system.
