About Net Billing

     The Trans and Dist Rate line of your bill you will show which rate applies:

    R = One time period
    RT = Two Time Periods or Time of use
    NE = Solar installation
    Residential = Non-Commercial Location
    Commercial = Non-Residential Location
    kWh = The Electricity you have used in Kilowatt Hours
    Meter = The device that measures the Electricity you have used and produced

    You will not see any format changes.

    The metering system measures how many kWh you have taken in and how many kWh you have put back out. UI will take the kWh you have put on the Grid and apply those kWh toward the kWh you've taken in. If the amount you generated exceeds what you have taken in, you will be billed and any excess will be banked and applied to the next months usage.

    Your bill will remain the same with the exception of the total kWh billed. If the amount you generated exceeds what you have taken in, you will be billed and any excess will be banked and applied to the next months usage. For additional information on understanding the bill, please refer to the Billing for Net Metering pamphlet.
