What is Net Metering?
Net metering allows members to generate their own electricity in order to offset their electricity usage. Common examples of net metering installations include solar panels on a home or a wind turbine at a school. These installations are connected to a meter, which will measure the net quantity of electricity that the member uses (“retail meter”). The retail meter spins forward when the member uses electricity from Big Sandy RECC and it spins backward when the member generates excess electricity (thereby “exporting” electricity to the electric grid). A special retail meter (also called the “net meter”) is required to allow for the “netting” of usage and generation, especially when there may be exporting of electricity.
