What is net metering?
- Net metering is available to Blachly-Lane Electric Cooperative members who own and operate a facility that generates electricity from a renewable source such as hydro, wind and solar. Solar systems are the most common type of homeowner installed renewable power source.
- Net metering measures the difference between the electricity you buy from Blachly-Lane and the electricity you generate using your renewable generating equipment.
- Net metering facilities are intended to offset or meet all of your own electrical requirements.
- If the facility generates more electricity than you use, Blachly-Lane credits you its avoided cost for wholesale electric power, as found in the Avoided Cost Rate Schedule.
