Net Metering Broken Down
Each kWh of unused solar generation is sent to the grid and credited at the retail power price under SCE's net metering policy.
When more energy is sent to the grid than drawn within a billing month credit is still provided at the retail rate and can be applied to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Remaining credit at the end of the 12 months is deposited into your account.
SCE do make their new solar customers switch to time of use billing under the new NEM-2 rules. The new rules cause about a 10% reduction to net metering returns however, declining equipment prices and excellent sun exposure in Southern California more than compensate for this change.
