What is net metering

Net Metering make’s it possible for municipal or private electric utility companies to properly credit customers for any energy their solar system may generate. When your home converts the sun’s rays to electricity but doesn’t use it all, the meter runs backwards, and you are given a credit on your bill. You will see this credit on your bill as kilowatt hours, and that amount of power will be automatically banked toward your next energy bill. In this way, not only are you drawing less energy from the electric company, but you are also saving money on any electricity you do have to buy. And because most homes create more energy than they use during the day, especially on a sunny day, most people benefit significantly from net metering.
