What is Net Metering?

Net Metering is a system in which solar panels or other renewable energy generators are installed at a home or business and then connected to a public-utility power grid through a meter that reads electricity flow in two directions. Power from the generator can allow customers to offset the cost of power drawn from the utility.

SMPA supports members who wish to install these systems on their buildings, and can offer insight and practical advice throughout the process.
