The term “net” comes from the fact that electricity produced by your renewable generation is subtracted from your total bill. In simple terms, we take the kilowatt hour (kWh) that is produced from the renewable generation and subtract it from your total energy usage (kWh). If you happen to produce more than you use for the month, any remainder is carried over and applied to your next month’s bill. The excess generation will continue to accumulate until the credit is utilized or after $100 or more has accumulated in a 24 month period at the avoided cost rate.
