Net-Metering (and why it matters)
For most of us, it’s easy to believe the narrative that we have been fed- Rooftop Solar is a great way to help the environment and to save on energy costs.
Many electric cooperatives provide incentives for customers who wish to produce their own energy, the result is a complex methodology of inter-connectivity, variable rate structures, and large increases to the workload of the cooperative to keep the grid stable.
But the truth, in contrast, is actually quite simple…
Net-Metering provides no downward pressure on rates as a whole. Instead, the costs are simply kicked to other members.
