1. The program through which your utility purchases excess solar energy in the form of credits.

2. The best thing to happen to your utility bill.

Let's start by reviewing how panels work

Unless you are fully off-grid with a battery and a generator, your system is interconnected to your utility grid.Each day, as your solar produces energy, your home immediately uses that energy. After the sun sets, anything surplus energy is sent to your utility company.At night, while your panels are not producing, your home will pull energy from the utility grid. Your utility company will buy your excess energy with credits you can put towards your utility bill.
