Net Metering


Total solar customers are limited
Net metering is a billing system that allows SLEMCO customers who are using rooftop solar panels and other small-scale, on-site power sources known as distributed generation (DG) to be accurately billed for electric service.

Current Louisiana Public Service Commission net metering rules cap the number of customers using solar power that electric utilities must accept at 0.5 percent. SLEMCO has now reached 75 percent of that 0.5 percent cap. Once 100 percent of that cap has been reached, LPSC net-metering rules allow electric providers to stop accepting applications.
