Net Metering

Net Metering helps you offset the cost of the electricity you buy from PGE with energy you generate at home. Power can be generated with solar, wind, hydro and other eligible renewable resources.

Map

Most PGE lines can easily support new Net Metering projects; however, a few areas have limited capacity to connect new generation projects without significant changes to the feeder or the substation. Small residential and business projects can still usually be accommodated, but may require design changes to protect grid safety and reliability. Check the map before you start your project to see if you’re in one of these areas.

Billing

Each billing period, the power you used from PGE is offset by the power you sent to PGE. Your bill for energy will only be for the difference or “net.” Your monthly bill will always include the basic service charge, taxes and other adjustments not related to the amount of energy used.
