Net metering describes any electrical energy generated at your account that is surplus to the electrical usage at that account. This electricity flows into the Cooperative’s system and is used to serve other Members.

Net metering facilities are intended to offset or meet all of your own electrical requirements.

Customer-generated power is then credited at the applicable rate in kilowatt-hours (kWh) at a 1:1 ratio. These credits are applied in the billing period following the billing period of production.
