Net Metering

Diagram of net metering

Net metering describes any electrical energy generated at your account that is surplus to the electrical usage at that account. This electricity flows into the Cooperative’s system and is used to serve other Members. Your meter will record the difference between the electricity you buy from Clearwater Power Company 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.

To qualify for net metering, the generating source must be an approved renewable such as:

  • Solar
  • Wind
  • Small Hydro

Customer-generated power is then credited at the applicable rate in kilowatt-hours (kWh) at a 1:1 ratio. These credits are applied in the billing period following the billing period of production.
