    Utilities Directory
Installing rooftop solar at your home lower the electricity portion of your utility bill. You are compensated for electricity that you export to the grid. Net Energy Metering (NEM) policies set terms for this compensation. We currently have retail net metering (NEM 1.0) available for all new solar PV systems installed and signed off by Building and Safety on December 31, 2020 or prior. Starting January 1, 2021, we will only have NEM 2.0 available for all new systems installed or new account holders on existing solar. 

Learn more about the new NEM 2.0 program and customers grandfathered under NEM 1.0 below.
