PG&E explains Net Energy Metering (NEM)

PG&E’s Net Energy Metering (NEM)

  • PG&E NEM allows solar subscriber to use the grid as a virtual battery, but pays interest with Time Of Use.
  • Deposit electricity into the grid when it is not being consumed. Billing is credited to the Net Energy Metering (NEM) account.
  • Solar subscriber is credited real time value time of day and season when the electricity is deposited into the grid EG:PEAK HOURS credited at the highest rate.
  • 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.*
  • At the end of each month, solar customer receives a Net Energy Metering (NEM) Statement. This shows debits or credits in Peak and off peak hours.

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