Net Energy Metering Program
Customers who have solar or wind energy systems and produce more energy than they use can earn bill credits for the excess power put back into the SDG&E grid.
You can later use that credit to cover the power you may need from SDG&E at times when your own self-generation doesn't fully meet your needs.
This is an annual program which automatically renews at the end of each 12-month cycle. If you receive both natural gas and electric service from SDG&E, you will receive two bills--one for natural gas and one for electricity.
Through NEM, solar customers remain eligible for energy efficiency programs and can receive incentives. (As a benefit of having PV, they can also avoid the costs of funding these programs.) In addition, NEM solar customers are exempt from paying stand-by and other charges that are incurred by customers using other types of electric generation technologies.
