The Benefits of Net Energy Metering (NEM)

Net Energy Metering is a solar incentive program that credits the amount of energy you produce back to your monthly bill. By offsetting the costs of power drawn from the grid, you save money. It’ s one of the biggest benefits to having solar panels installed on your roof, but the utilities are trying to reduce it with NEM 3.0!

NEM 2.0 for California Homeowners

  • Solar credits built throughout the year can be used during months you need more energy. 

  • No extra monthly charges for California residents that decide to install solar.
  • Energy sold back to the utility company under current billing at same rate. 

NEM 3.0 for California Homeowners

  • Average solar systems could incur additional monthly charges.

  • Reduced solar credits (up to 84%) for surplus energy sold back to the utility companies. 

  • Unused solar credits can't be carried forward, resulting in less savings.

Solar Energy is still a great way to save!
