One thought on “Ads Attack Net Metering in Arizona

  1. The advertisements are full of deceit and lies.

    Net metering allows a homeowner to “bank” excess generated electricity, kWh for kWh, on the local substation “grid”, exchanging very expensive, very valuable, “peak demand” electricity for less valuable “off peak” electricity consumed by the homeowner at night.

    Under the current Arizona EPR-6 rate, any off-peak use is credited first with excess solar-generated electricity, then credit is given for any on-peak use if that is exhausted.

    Excess electricity generated by the solar system homeowner is consumed entirely within the local substation grid by nearby neighbors and adjacent businesses, up to the first substation voltage regulator, and does not need any long transmission lines, allowing the local utiltity to re-sell this energy at “on-peak” retail rates without any additional costs.
