This bill example is for Net Energy Metering (NEM) rate customers on a 12-month settlement cycle. Only customers who have a solar system approved to install before March 1, 2022 are on our NEM rate.

As a solar customer, your electricity bill differs from our standard electricity bill. Solar customers are billed monthly and placed on a 12-month settlement cycle. You can elect to pay for your electricity usage once a year or on a monthly basis. Depending on which option you select, your bill will look different. This is a sample of a bill when you elect to pay for your electricity usage annually. The sample bill line items may not match all the line items on your solar bill due the variability of solar generation and billing options.
