Net Metering creates a credit solar energy system that stores energy for later use.  It allows home or commerical owners who generate their electricity, to surplus energy back into the grid by using these 'credits'.

Thanks to Illinois’ net metering policy, your utility will buy back any excess electricity your solar system produces. Net metering ensures that you benefit from the full value of your solar panels and is a great way to balance out your electricity production and consumption, which do not always happen at the same time. Commonwealth Edison offers the top utility net metering program in Illinois.
