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.
  • A rooftop 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.

Time-Of-Use Rates

Time-of-Use (TOU) is a rate plan in which electricity rates vary according to the time and day of usage. It also means that electricity prices are higher during peak demand hours and lower during off-peak hours. Learn more about Time Of Use (TOU).
