What is Net Metering?
Net Metering, also known as “Solar Power Generation”, is a system in which solar panels are connected to a public-utility power grid and surplus power is transferred onto the grid and the customers are then credited for the power generated at a rate approved by the municipal council. For example, you can view Provo’s current net metering rates here.
Provo Power is an advocate for renewable energy resources, and is even using a solar array at their administration office. Provo Power and UMPA (Utah Municipal Power Agency) are working to create programs of awareness and offer community solar options where customers can participate without the up-front capital costs. It is the goal of Provo Power to promote and use renewable resources where appropriate, but to also inform our customers of the latest trends and demands in the electric industry.
