What is Net-Metering?
Net-Metering is a program under RA 9513, the Renewable Energy (RE) Act. It allows customers to install an RE facility within their premises up to a capacity of 100kW. Any excess electricity not consumed in the home or business is exported to a distribution utility (in this case, Meralco). In return, Meralco compensates customers through credits in their monthly bill.
100kW is the ceiling established under the RE Act's Net-Metering Rules. Any RE installation above 100kW is no longer covered by the Net-Metering program. As such, the RE installation will fall under the Zero-Export program, and will not be allowed to export to the Meralco system.
