How does the net metering rate work?

Geneva City Code provides for the net metering of energy only. Customers will not be paid for any energy “pushed” onto the grid. Credits for unused energy are accumulated starting May 1 and continue to be accrued throughout the year. On April 30, any unused energy credits are zero’d out and the accruals start fresh on May 1. These dates coincide with the beginning and end of the City's fiscal year.

The base customer charge will still apply to the account, even if the energy usage is zero for billing purposes. The net metering rate is subject to changes and rate-making just as the other rates adopted by the City of Geneva.
