You’ll still receive a monthly statement from your utility. Depending upon the size of your solar system, your family’s energy usage, how much solar energy you generate monthly and local net metering rules, that bill could show a credit or a small amount due.
Our solar and roofing pros will help you decide whether going solar makes economic sense for you.
Are solar panels worth the investment?
With a net-metering agreement, surplus energy generated by your solar system is fed back into the power grid. A surplus results when you generate more solar energy than you use within a given timeframe (i.e. your monthly billing cycle).
The value of this energy, governed by your local net metering policies, is typically treated as a credit to your bill, and can be managed in several ways. Depending on the state, the value may roll over month-to-month. In other areas, that amount may be credited quarterly or annually.
