What is Net Metering?

The ability to interconnect with the grid is called Net Metering. Net Metering measures the energy:

  • Used from MVEA (the grid)
  • Generated from your renewable system

Your Energy & Renewable System

  • If your renewable system generates more energy than you use, the excess energy produced is fed into the grid and a credit, called banked use, is applied to your bill.
  • If you use more energy than your renewable system generates, then the grid will back you up and provide the power you need.
