What is Net Metering?  Net Metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. For example, if a residential customer has a PV system on their roof, it may generate more electricity than the home uses during daylight hours. If the home is net-metered, the electricity meter will run backwards to provide a credit against what electricity is consumed at night or other periods when the home's electricity use exceeds the system's output. Customers are only billed for their "net" energy use.

If you are purchasing Solar Panels for your home to generate power you might be eligible for Net Metering.  The Solar Permit Submittal Checklist must be completed and submitted to bpermits@indepmo.org
