SC Homeowners are Eligible for 1:1 Net Metering
Net metering allows you to sell surplus power onto the grid when you’re not using it, which can reduce or even completely offset the cost of power drawn from the utility.
This means the excess electricity generated on a sunny day can offset the amount you use on a cloudy day. Or the excess electricity generated during the day can offset the amount you use at night.
For example, if you use 500 kWhs of electricity and your solar panels generate 450 kWhs of electricity, you will only be charged for using 50 kWhs of electricity!
Both Duke and Dominion Energy must allow new homeowners to enroll in net metering if an application is submitted before June 1, 2021. Applications filed after this date may no longer be eligible for the same benefits.
