Net Metering Makes Going Solar Easy
Net energy metering (NEM) is a special billing arrangement between solar homeowners and their local utility. With NEM, when a home generates more energy than it can consume, the homeowner is credited the amount of the excess energy sent back the grid at full retail value. These credits can be used during non-daylight hours when homeowners can’t generate their own electricity. While all states don’t have a net metering policy, California definitely does. And what’s great is that with Sunrun, we make it even easier to participate in NEM by handling all the paperwork and making sure our customers get all the benefits that come with this great policy.
