Will net metering members receive a monthly check for the excess energy generated?

No. With net metering, members will not receive a separate payment from Piedmont Electric for their excess generation. Instead, any excess energy produced will offset the member’s total electricity bill during the month. Excess energy will be credited on a separate line item (Net Metering Over-Generation) in the Detail of Charges section which will offset other billing charges. If the credit exceeds all the billing charges, the credit will be carried over to the next month.
