I am a paragraph into a blog about net metering and I have not even told you what it is yet, so here it goes. Generally speaking, most houses utilize less electricity during the day because their occupants are out and about at work or school. A house that is connected to FPL’s power grid, then, is sipping less power during those daytime hours than it will be when everyone is home watching tv, charging cell phones, and the like. Well, a house that is both on the power grid and that has its own, say, solar panels might just be using so little power during the daytime hours that the solar panels can create an electricity surplus. Rather than waste the power that the panels are creating, FPL automatically buys it back for its grid. The homeowners are compensated for the electricity that FPL is buying back either as a credit on their bill or by having the same amount of energy deducted from their bill. This sounds like a win for all of the parties that are involved!
My explanation of the net metering process is incredibly simple, but there is a little bit more to it than what I wrote. To learn more, check out net metering frequently asked questions page by clicking here.
