This Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) video answers frequently asked questions about how your electric bill changes after going solar. When your solar panels produce more power than your home needs, that energy can return to the grid for other households to use. A special metering option called Net Energy Metering (NEM) actually credits your overall electric bill based on how much power you provide to the grid. For some customers, this could mean a $0 electric bill for the month.
State law ensures that electric companies across Southern California, including Southern California Edison, SDG&E, and Riverside Public Utilities, also offer this solar rebate credit. It’s just one more reason to go solar.
