Virginia’s Net Metering Program

A lot of questions come up when it comes to one’s electricity usage on solar. What happens when you make more than you use is one of these commonly referred to as the process of “net metering”. This is something you may hear and not know the specifics of, but it very much could make or break the solar deal for you.

What exactly is net metering?

In short, Virginia’s net metering program can allow you to not only save on your electricity bill, but also earn on it with the use of solar energy. The term “net metering” refers to what happens when you are making more electricity than you use. When this excess energy pours over into the grid, it’s counted up, and after a certain amount of time, your power bill will quite literally be paying you. Before they pay you, though, you can use the power you put into the grid as excess at the wholesale price you put it in for. Altogether, solar energy makes your electricity bill plummet, and, at times, even profitable.
