Net Metering-How to Get the Electric Company to Pay You

wind-turbineWant an easy way to make money with little effort on your part? Then renewable energy generating systems is the way to go. You install the equipment to power your home through environmentally friendly alternative power sources and the electric company pays you in return.

How Does This Work?

In over thirty states in America, electric customers can install renewable energy generating systems to the power grid. When the renewable generator produces more power than is being consumed the electric meter builds credits. Customers are then only charged the “net” of the power they consumed and then are refunded the accumulated excess over a period of time.

Equipment and Systems

The most common renewable energy system is a wind turbine. According to the United States Department of Energy, “A small home-sized wind machine, with rotors between 8 and 25 feet in diameter and standing upwards of 30-feet tall, can supply the power needs of an all-electric home or small business.”

The second common renewable energy system is solar panels. According to Greenpeace, “Twenty-four, 100-watt solar panels installed on a house will meet 50% of an average family’s electricity needs over a year, thus avoiding the emission of approximately 40 tons of carbon dioxide during the lifetime of the system.”

Benefits

Electricity customers will discover the financial benefit in installing renewable energy systems at home. The refund on excess energy can reduce a homeowner’s electric bill in half. Plus the extra money can be spent where you want to spend it.

The dependence on clean, renewable energy cuts the need of depending on fossil fuels which pollute the earth and causes health related hazards. Another benefit of clean energy is the surplus accumulated, which can curb electrical blackouts common to large cities during the summer time heat.

Having a renewable generator plus electricity will give the customer security in knowing they will always be guaranteed of uninterrupted service. For example, if you’re using a wind turbine and many days have passed since there was a breeze in your neighborhood, you would still have electricity as a backup. On the other hand, if you have a power outage during a storm, your renewable energy system will still provide you with power.

Encouraging citizens to add clean sources of energy to their home will decrease Americans need for dirty, fossil fuels such as coal and oil. As we use less gas emissions which contribute to pollution, we also limit health problems like asthma and other related respiratory illnesses.

Conclusion

Customers who install renewable energy sources such as wind or solar powered systems can earn money by selling the excess power back to the electric company. You can feel good about yourself for using clean sources of electricity while earning money without much effort.

    HEY I THINK THATS A GOOD IDEA I THINK EVERYBODY THAT OWN HOUSES OR THE PERSON WHO OWN APARMENT AND HOTELS AND BIG BUSSINES TOWERS SHOULD DO THIS PUT SUN PANELS TO RESTORE ENERGY AND GIVE IT TO THE ELECTRIC COMPANY AND THEY PAY US EVERY MONTH LOWER OUR ENERGY BILL AND EVERYBODY LIVE HAPPY AND NO MORE WASTING ENERGY AND IS GOOD TO THE PLANET THIS COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE.
