Solar Net Metering

Thinking about adding solar net metering to your house or farm? By going solar you are protecting yourself from rising energy costs, saving money long-term, building value in your home, farm or business, and helping our environment by replacing non-renewable energy sources.

Many small and large electricity consumers are looking at Net Metering Solutions to help offset their hydro bills and save.  When your solar panels produce more electricity than you need, that electricity is sent to the grid in exchange for credits. Then, at night or other times when your solar panels are under-producing, you pull electricity from the grid and use these credits to offset the costs of that energy.

How Solar Net Metering Works


  1. Solar panels generate electricity.
  2. The electricity generated from solar panels is used to power the building first.
  3. Any extra electricity generated is temporarily sent to the local grid.
  4. If you supply more electricity than what you take from the grid over the billing cycle, you’ll receive a credit toward future energy bills. The credit can be carried forward for up to 12 months.
  5. Electricity is drawn from the local grid when the building’s electricity needs are higher than the amount of electricity generated by the solar panels.
  6. Net-metered customers’ monthly electricity charges are calculated based on the difference between the amount of electricity used from the local grid and the credits received from any electricity sent to the local grid from the solar panels.

Our specific goal with net metering is to off-set your electricity charges. However, renewable solar power systems also let you think long term and consider the bigger electricity picture. By incorporating renewable solar, you are giving your property the ability to integrate energy storage to help power your home, car, generator and more.


To better serve our customers, we have developed a remote-assessment tool that will conveniently allow us to gather the information we would normally during a site-evaluation. With this information, we can provide you with solar system options, savings and cost.
