Penn Power Net Metering

Offering net metering to consumers is a win-win situation for Penn Power and individuals who get their electricity from the company. The purchase of solar panels and alternative electricity sources is often prohibitively priced for private individuals. Net metering allows purchasers of these electricity sources to sell extra wattage back to their electricity supplier, making the installation of these alternative sources more financially friendly.
