Net Metering

Net metering is one way to measure and value the output of member-owned generation.  At Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative, net energy metering is an arrangement between the Cooperative and a member-owner that allows the member-owner to install renewable fuel generation at the member-owner’s premises and interconnect it with the Cooperative’s distribution system.  The intent of the arrangement is to allow the member-owner to meet all, or part, of their electricity requirements by using renewable fuel generation on the member-owner’s premises.  The meter logs kilowatt hours when the member-owner is a net user of electricity.  Conversely, the meter credits kilowatt hours at the meter when the member-owner is a net generator of electricity, resulting in a month-ending meter reading that represents net use.
