WBMLP's SOLAR NET METERING POLICY — Please call WBMLP at 508-835-3681 or email us to receive an up-to-date copy of our “DG Metering Policy”. Residential customers can install distributed generation (DG) like solar systems up to maximum size of 10kW (DC). If you install a solar system, WBMLP will install a bidirectional meter which measures energy in two directions at the main meter socket. The DG net metering policy basically states;
- ☀ Any energy, measured monthly, delivered by WBMLP to the customer is billed at the full retail residential electric rate, and
- ☀ Any energy, measured monthly, received from customer to WBMLP is credited at the wholesale cost of energy (Based on monthly average real-time energy cost in ISO-NE WCMAS)
