Yes. MCE’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) program credits rooftop solar customers for the excess electricity they send back to the grid.

Net metering allows customers to turn their meters backwards and receive credit at times when their solar systems generate more power than is used on-site. NEM customers are charged when they use more power than their system produces. The credits and charges are netted out either monthly or annually.

The California Public Utilities Commission requires PG&E to treat MCE generation customers the same as PG&E generation customers. That means that MCE provides generation credits and charges, while PG&E continues to charge for transmission, distribution, and all other services.
