What is Net Metering?
Net Metering is a process in which solar panels or other renewable energy generators are connected to a public-utility power grid and surplus power is transferred onto the grid, allowing customers to offset the cost of power drawn from the utility. Net Metering is available with BMU. Call (573) 471-3328 for more information.
