Net metering(redirected from Market rate net metering)
A method of crediting customers for electricity that they generate onsite in excess of their own electricity consumption. If customers generate more than they use in a billing period, their electric meter turns backwards to indicate their net excess generation. Depending on individual state or utility rules, the net excess generation may be credited to their account, or carried over to a future billing period.
