Remote Net Metering

Remote Net-Metering, also known as “Virtual Net-Metering”, is an arrangement that allows for the kilowatt hours (kWh) generated from a solar photovoltaic system located at a specific site to be credited towards kWh consumption at a different location.


A key benefit of Remote Net-Metering is that provides entities with sites that are not suitable for solar projects (i.e. shade-challenged roofs, or utility grid interconnection barriers) to install solar projects on locations best suited for solar, and then simply allocate the system’s surplus kWh production to the original site.

Net metering offers value for excess energy without any additional installation or other expensive storage systems. Second, it serves as a way for homeowners and businesses to contribute energy and remove some of the pressure from the grid, especially during peak consumption periods.

Traditional Net-Metering has been critical to the nascent growth of the U.S. “distributed generation” solar market, and we believe broader adoption of Remote Net-Metering would facilitate greater and more rapid deployment of solar across the country.

Different versions of Remote Net-Metering have been enacted in California (the MASH program), Connecticut (Virtual Net-Metering), Colorado (Community Solar Gardens), Massachusetts (Neighborhood Net-Metering), and Rhode Island, to name a few.

We believe this proliferation of Remote Net-Metering program opens up a multitude of creative solar structuring alternatives for businesses and real estate owners across the US.
