Net Metering

Net metering allows members to interconnect small, renewable energy sources, such as a solar system, with the electric cooperative’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 offset future power consumed.

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.

Kenergy’s Net Metering Tariff includes the rules, regulations and guidelines for net metering.
