What is Net Energy Metering?

  • Net Energy Metering, Net Metering, or NEM is how you make money by selling excess energy back to the grid

  • NEM allows you to lock in the most savings from your system

  • Up until now, California's NEM laws have been consumer-friendly, giving us easy savings

What is NEM 3.0?

  • NEM 3.0 is the California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) proposed amendment to the law

  • NEM 3.0 switches metering plans to "time of use", meaning you pay more for energy, especially during nightly peak hours

  • Under the proposal, solar users are charged an additional fee just for owning solar panels

  • CPUC votes on the law as early as January 27th, 2022

Why are these changes coming?

  • Thanks to California's consumer-friendly laws and sunny weather, the solar industry has exploded

  • Utility companies have taken a hit to their wallets because of solar's great saving potential

  • To bring back their profits, utility companies have been rallying to change the Net Metering laws

What Can You do Solectric

What can you do?

  • Under NEM 3.0, the best way to save is to stay as disconnected from the grid as possible

  • Adding a battery to your system is the best way to keep your savings

  • With a battery, you'll no longer need to worry about the higher prices for nighttime energy

  • If your energy requirements are low, you can sell back to the grid from your battery during the night for bigger savings

How is Solectric helping?

  • Solectric has joined thousands of small-time solar companies in petitioning CPUC to keep NEM consumer-friendly

  • It looks like our petitioning may not be enough, but we're not scared

  • When NEM 3.0 takes effect, Solectric is ready to install its state-of-the-art SunPower batteries wherever you need
