4. What is net metering?
Net metering, or Net Energy Metering, is the system whereby surplus power produced by a home is sent back to the electric grid during the moments when more power being generated by your system is more than required. At the point when this happens, your meter keeps counting in reverse. Net metering helps you in accounting for these high points and low points in your everyday power generation and utilization. Net metering policies differ from state to state – from Massachusetts to California to Hawaii – so make sure to do your homework ahead of time.
