Net Energy Metering 1.0

NEM 1.0 is closed as of December 31, 2020.  All new Customers resulting from either new construction, or a change in Customer Account, are being enrolled in NEM 2.0 beginning January 1, 2021.

Net Energy Metering (NEM) was mandated by state legislation in the mid-2000s, which allows for solar customers to remain fully interconnected to the electric or power grid and receive a retail credit, kWh for kWh, on their entire bill for all excess energy sent back to the grid. The legislation mandated that we offer retail NEM up to 5 percent (30 MW) of our peak aggregate load, a mandate Anaheim Public Utilities met in 2019.
