Understanding Home Solar Production and Net Metering

Would you like to see your power meter run backward? One of the top benefits of owning a home solar system is called net metering. Net metering is a billing agreement between a solar owning customer and the utility company. When solar panels produce more electricity than you need, the extra energy is offloaded to the grid in exchange for net metering credits. You can then cash in on your energy credits at night or during days with low solar activity.

See below to learn more about home solar net metering.

Seasonal Solar Panel Performance



Solar panels perform well during the summer but do solar panels work in winter? A common misconception is that bad weather will offset the saving gained by solar energy. Learn about solar power generation in summer vs winter and how weather and seasonal changes may affect your home solar system’s energy production.
