Net metering is an electric company policy that allows members to interconnect small, renewable energy sources, such as a solar system, with the electric company’s power grid.
Members' bills are then based on the net, or difference, between what is consumed and produced on site. Any excess power produced will appear as a credit on the next bill.
Example: Joe normally uses 1,500 kWh (kilowatt hour) per month. He installs a net-metered solar system that generates 1,000 KWh. This month, Joe will be billed for 500 kWh instead of 1500 kWh — his actual use.
Kenergy offers net metering to eligible members with an onsite renewable energy source with a capacity up to 30 KW. Renewable energy sources include solar, wind, water, biomass and biogas.
