How Can Net Metering Credits Reduce My Electricity Bills?

 When you purchase a net metering credit through our program, you will be paying $0.85 for $1.00 worth of credits to be applied to your electricity bill.  This essentially results in a 15% discount on your electricity bill.  The sale of these credits is a win for everyone – your electricity bills are lower and the solar farms receive a valuable stream of revenue that allows for the development of future solar projects.

Check out Nexamp’s Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on how this program works.

Bottom Line Impacts

1)    Net metering is a fast, easy way to secure long-term energy savings.

2)    Net metering provides a mechanism for supporting local sources of renewable energy without having to deal with the hassles of developing your own project.

3)    Net metering has no impact on existing or future supply contracts.  Purchasing credits will not impact your relationship with your competitive supplier.

4)    Net metering is a simple, zero cost capital transaction.  It requires no upfront investment for a guaranteed return.
