Net Energy Metering Multiple Tariff (NEMMT)


Net Energy Metering Multiple Tariff (NEM2-MT) is a Net Energy Metering (NEM) program for customers who operate a NEM-eligible generator in conjunction with a non-export or NEM fuel cell generator. The program allows a customer to interconnect these technologies with PG&E's electric grid at one service point, using one account, and still qualify for the special rate options that would be available if each technology were interconnected and billed separately. Criteria for NEM2-MT includes:

  • The maximum generator size for NEM portion must be sized to the customer’s recent annual load.
  • There is no maximum size for the non-NEM portion.
  • The account must be on a time-of-use rate (TOU) schedule.
  • A customer's generating technologies may include any combination of generators, as long as at least one is a generator that qualifies for one of the NEM2 programs.
  • Customer does not sell the power generated using PG&E's or California Independent System Operator's (CAISO) equipment.

NEM-Paired Storage (NEM-PS)

Per the Special Condition section titled "NEM Paired Storage" of the NEM Successor Tariff (NEM 2)(PDF, 2.7 MB), storage devices paired with a NEM-eligible technology (e.g. solar) are distinct from NEM2-MT projects. Applicants who are eligible for NEM-PS will be notified after submitting an interconnection request. For more information about NEM-PS, review NEM Paired Storage (PDF, 309 KB).
