Learn about the Net Energy Metering Aggregation program
PG&E’s Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA) program is designed to benefit a single customer with multiple eligible meters on the same property, or on adjacent or contiguous properties. NEMA enables one renewable generation system, such as solar technology, to serve the energy needs (aggregated load) of multiple eligible meters.
The program follows the model of Net Energy Metering (NEM): the energy you produce, minus the energy you consume, equals net energy.

Excess power beyond what is used at the meter where the renewable generator is installed is exported back to the grid. Then, it’s allocated to each eligible meter at the end of each billing month. At the end of 12 billing months from interconnection, all charges and credits are reconciled in an annual “True-Up" statement. Note: For agricultural and large commercial meters, charges and credits are reconciled monthly.
Customers are eligible if all of the metered accounts are owned, leased or rented by the same PG&E customer of record. Also, the meters must be located on the same property as the renewable generator or on adjacent properties.
