Thinking of using a renewable "green" energy technology to generate your own
electricity and reduce your monthly costs? Net metering might be the ideal
solution for you.With net metering you save money and protect the environment!
Net metering is an electricity policy for consumers who own renewable energy
facilities (such as wind power and solar power), and allows them to use
generation whenever needed, instead of just when generated. In simple terms,
the electric grid is being used for excess energy storage,instead of batteries.
With net metering your hydro bill will show the difference between the amounts
of energy your generation system produced and exported versus the amount of
energy your household consumed. All of the regulated charges such as delivery
charge, regulatory charge and debt-retirement charge apply only to your net

The more you contribute, the more you save. Your utility will subtract the value of
electricity you supply to the grid from the value of what you take from the grid,
and the 'net' difference between these will appear on your bill. If the power you
supply to the system is greater than the amount that you actually use, you will
receive a credit that can be used towards future energy bills for up to one year.
Rombro Solar offers variety of grid tied solar PV and wind powered solutions so
that any property can become a candidate for net metering.

We will make sure that your solar PV system meets all the requirements by your
local distribution company (LDC), electrical safety authority (ESA) and local

Thinking of managing your energy costs? Tired of receiving higher hydro bill
every month? If you answered yes to either question, look no further!

Say you use a total of 1,000 kWh of electricity in a year, which you normally buy
from your utility via the electrical grid. If you install a turbine that generates 400
kWh in a year, but only 100 kWh of that electricity is produced at a time when you
can use it (maybe when you're at home in the evenings and on weekends), then
your turbine is producing another 300 kWh of electricity you need to store
somewhere. By interconnecting your turbine to the grid and using a net metering agreement with your utility, you "store" that 300 kWh of unused electricity on the grid until you need it later, as if the grid were a huge battery.
So you require a total of 1,000 kWh per year of electricity and 100 kWh of that is met WHEN YOU NEED IT by your turbine... therefore, at the end of the year, your electricity bill from the utility says you've used 900 kWh from the grid, but remember, you've also "stored" that extra 300 kWh of your turbine's unused electricity on the grid. Your utility takes the gross of 900 kWh you used, minus the 300 kWh you stored on the grid, resulting in 600 kWh of net electricity you used from the grid. Your utility charges you for 600 kWh and you've effectively 'run your electrical meter backwards'! (Source: Canwea)

Since late 2003, more regional utilities in Canada have been developing and
implementing net metering to allow customers to store some of their electricity
on the national grid. Please call your local utility to find out their latest news.
