Let PG&E Tariffs tell you why to go solar.

Now, you can get paid for helping.


Solar stabilizes the grid 

by supplying energy to grid 

when it is needed most. 

See 5% capacity mentioned above. 

It is roughly 100 years old 

grid system. 

When we continue paying retail rates to rent electricity, we act as traditional consumers. In this role, you will constantly place consumption demands on the grid and have only one exclusive method of receiving energy. You are paying Retail Rates.Save money by eliminating extra transmission fees and most distribution fees when you draw energy from your quiet and clean mini-energy factory on your rooftop. 

  • PG&E will only charge $10 for distribution when you go solar.

  • Without solar, you will contribute towards rising rates as you continue to draw from the far less efficient, environmentally unfriendly emergency supply of electricity on the hottest days.

  • Time Of Use Rate Plans will help prevent blackouts. This is expected to help prevent greater draw of emergency dirty power when demand becomes excessive on the grid. 

  • Grid electricity will cost more in summer unless you make the choice to take control.

Go solar.

Above short 2+ minutes from PG&E explains NET ENERGY METERING.

  1. NET ENERGY METERING allows the PG&E solar subscriber to use the grid as a virtual battery, but pays interest with Time Of Use trading. 
  2. We deposit electricity into the grid when it is not being consumed. Electricity being produced by solar and not immediately consumed is credited to the Net Energy Metering account. 
  3. The solar subscriber is credited real value for the time of day and season when the electricity is deposited into the grid. 
  4. At night, or rainy days, when no electricity is being produced from solar, the solar subscriber buys units of electricity back from PG&E for normal price.*
  5. At the end of each month, solar customer receives a NEM Statement. This statement will show kWh credited and debited during peak and off peak hours.Once yearly, the solar customer receives a True Up statement. This statement will include either a debit if more electricity was consumed than produced or a credit if more kWh were produced than consumed. 

· Non-Bypassable Charge of 2 cents/kWh is added to NEM 2.0 subscribers when buying back.
