About Net Energy Metering


Residential Solar Energy in The Woodlands TX

Net Metering 101

If your solar panels generate electricity you don’t use, this power is exported back to the grid. If you export more power than you use in a given month, this “solar bank” will roll forward to future billing months until the credit can be used or expires. The net energy metering (NEM) program credit in the MP2 program is the value of a) the exported power and b) the “banked” solar power for a given month.

But not all solar net metering programs are equal! Even if another company’s rate looks cheaper at first glance, it’s not the most economical decision if they’re not fairly compensating you for the excess solar you send back to the grid. Read on to learn why Texas solar homeowners trust MP2. Please note: Our program is currently limited to the Oncor and CenterPoint service territories.


1

MP2 credits the solar power you export at a fixed rate that’s the same rate we charge you for grid power. Other programs don’t offer a fixed rate for either of these and leave you exposed to possible increases in power prices.

2

Our program offers long-term fixed rate contracts up to 60 months, whereas other programs carry shorter terms or expose you to possible increases in power prices through a variable rate.

3

MP2 doesn’t cap the amount of exported solar power that we’re willing to credit you each month. Other programs credit you at a fixed rate for only a portion of the power you export, or credit the export at a reduced or variable rate.

4

MP2 allows you to “bank” and roll forward your exported solar power. If you export more than the total amount of grid energy you consume, this power is “banked,” or rolled over to the next month for you to apply toward your next bill (like cell phone minutes).

5

MP2 credits you the fixed TDSP charges.

I need help completing my net energy metering form

Contact your solar installer if you’re having trouble. They can provide you with the necessary details about your panels that are needed to complete our form.

Does my kWh bank continue to roll over forever?

There’s an annual “true-up” after your May bill cycle, at which point we clear the kWh remaining in your bank. If your solar panel system is sized appropriately, there should not be a significant amount – if any – remaining in your bank.
