NET ENERGY METERING 3.0

CALIFORNIA'S METERING LAWS ARE CHANGING,
AND SO ARE THE WAYS YOU SAVE MONEY. 

The new proposed changes mean you'll be saving less without solar storage solutions. Lock in your savings with a battery before these changes take effect.

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.jpg

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
