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 to install renewable fuel generation at the member’s premises and interconnect it with the Cooperative’s distribution system.  The intent of the arrangement is to allow the member to meet all, or part, of their electricity requirements by using renewable fuel generation on the member’s premises.  The meter logs kilowatt hours when the member is a net user of electricity.  Conversely, the meter credits kilowatt hours at the meter when the member is a net generator of electricity, resulting in a month-ending meter reading that represents net use.
