 NET Metering

Net metering is a billing arrangement whereby customers can send electricity generated from renewable sources to the electrical grid for a credit towards their electricity bill. Waterloo North Hydro will subtract the value of electricity supplied to the grid from the value of what is taken from the grid over a billing period. If a customer supplies power that is worth more than what they taken from the grid over the billing period, they will receive a credit that they can carry over to help lower future electricity bills. For details reference Ontario Regulation 541/05.
